We Invest in IP, Not Companies

It is not our intent to manage or maintain a majority equity in any of our "graduate" enterprises. The University of Iowa is limited to developing and licensing university related intellectual property.  By mentoring faculty, students, and researchers in entrepreneurship and by fostering new venture development, UIVentures supports these goals.

We Connect People, We Don't Recommend People

The University of Iowa encourages and supports a healthy and growing entrepreneurial environment in eastern Iowa. The university, UIVentures and the University of Iowa Research Foundation (UIRF) can be a facilitator to bring university IP, faculty and students together with entrepreneurs and business leaders. UIVentures and UIRF do not make recommendations or vouch for any individual or entity. Both parties should carefully evaluate any offer (financial or otherwise) on an individual basis. Legal council should be consulted before making any binding agreement.
