Iowa State University Research Park
The ISU Research Park is home to the state headquarters of the Iowa Small Business Development Centers and the ISU Pappajohn Center for Entrepreneurship, both of which are centered under the College of Business. The Park is a 230-acre development with over 270,000 square feet of building space, located just south of the ISU campus in Ames.
Although the ISU Research Park is closely connected with the university, it operates independently, offering assistance and accessibility to many university and area connections, including facilities, expertise, technology, financing, recruiting and more. The Park strives to create an innovation community and provide an incubator for new and expanding businesses. It also assists young Iowa-based companies develop their potential and nurtures scientific and technological entrepreneurial ventures.
