Student Venture Competition Finals
April 28, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
Sponsored by John Pappajohn, Equity Dynamics, Inc., the Pappajohn Student Entrepreneurial Venture Competition is intended for Iowa university and college students with an interest in starting their own business. Plans are judged based on a) Content of Plan and b) Viability of business idea. Three (3) seed grants in the amount of $5,000 are awarded to the top three business plans submitted in the competition. In addition, all finalists receive $500 if not chosen for the top awards.
Finalists will give a pitch (including pitch deck) to John Pappajohn and his senior advisors at Equity Dynamics in Des Moines, Iowa. Three top awards ($5,000 each) will be presented following a luncheon event. $5,000 winners are not eligible for the $500 regional award – only one award per team.
