Venture School is a statewide program that emphasizes real-world entrepreneurship and innovation-based, leading edge curriculum taught by serial entrepreneurs. It is offered in person at locations in Iowa City, Des Moines, Quad Cities, and Cedar Falls. It’s reach allows the program to be accessible to entrepreneurs across the state of Iowa. This program works for startups, small businesses, non-profits, and corporate innovation teams.
Your team will accelerate the startup process by testing your business hypotheses immediately. You will get out of the building to talk to customers, partners, and competitors, rather than relying on static case studies and secondhand market research.
You will encounter first-hand the chaos and uncertainty of commercializing innovations and creating new ventures, and will be challenged to create your own business model, making pivots or preserving based on your findings.
