Entrepreneurship enriches every path - find your
passion and shape your future with these innovative programs


Entrepreneurship education for young people plays a vital role in a rural community's economic development. As rural populations decrease, entrepreneurship is the path forward to create new opportunities and economic growth in our communities. The Pappajohn Center believes that, more than ever, we need to educate students to be continual learners.

The NIACC Pappajohn Center has created a continuum of programs to provide the knowledge that young people in North Iowa need to become business and job creators. Empowering North Iowa's youth to create their own economic vitality, and educating them on how this benefits not only themselves but everyone in their region, is a vital part of our mission.
