From hundreds of nominees, to 56 finalists, JPEC was named one of 13 winners.

“We are thrilled to be named the Service Provider of the Year by the Silicon Prairie News. It recognizes all JPEC has done to support entrepreneurs across the state and on-campus, including our new Venture School entrepreneurial training and expanded business consulting programs. It would not have been possible without the hard work and determination of our staff and the entrepreneurs we serve,” said Lynn Allendorf, JPEC Director.
