Businesses change hands every day. Owners, sell, retire or die. Instead of a community losing a valuable ongoing business and jobs, the NIACC John Pappajohn Entrepreneurial Center (JPEC) works with owners and buyers to identify and access different federal, state and local resources for a smooth hand off and long term success of the business. The NIACC JPEC is not a broker or a bank, but has enabled established companies and jobs to stay in North Central Iowa. If you are a current business owner that wants to develop an exit strategy or smooth the transition to new owners, contact the JPEC at firstname.lastname@example.org.
