Business Consulting

Iowa JPEC business consulting services assist startups and businesses across the state of Iowa. This program provides affordable strategic results for clients, while also exposing students to real-world experiences.

Our Mission

  • Provide an affordable solution for Iowa businesses and startups- helping them tackle challenges and targeted projects, while also supporting the Iowa entrepreneurial ecosystem.
  • Provide recruitment and networking opportunities by connecting business students with Iowa employers.
  • Provide University of Iowa undergraduate and graduate students with challenging hands-on professional experiences, preparing them for future career success and giving clients first dibs on recruiting their next hire.

How It Works

This program runs year-round and is structured around three academic course cycles in the following: fall (August – December), spring (January – May), and summer (June-July). Each client project will be worked on for approx. 120-150 hours throughout the course and should be able to be completed within this time.

Consulting services are provided by teams of 3-5 students, who are led and evaluated by experienced faculty and mentors throughout the class. The students will communicate with the client regularly to share progress reports and obtain feedback from the client. The course concludes with a final student presentation to the clients.

There is a $500 charge for Iowa JPEC consulting services. A limited number of scholarships are available for pre-revenue startups. Please contact for additional information
