Entrepreneurship Classes & Workshops

The JPEC provides one-on-one small business counseling for K-college student entrepreneurs from UNI and other area colleges, as well as, faculty and staff entrepreneurs at the University of Northern Iowa. Assistance ranges from providing basic information on starting a small business to help writing a business plan. In addition to this one-on-one counseling, the JPEC has many books and other information on starting and running a small business.
