McElroy Trust helps UNI student business incubator


The legacy of R.J. McElroy, founder of KWWL, is once again helping students further their education.

The R.J. McElroy trust is providing a $300,000 grant to the newly minted R.J. McElroy Student Business Incubator.

The incubator is a program of the John Pappajohn Entrepreneurial Center.

Students working in the center have an opportunity to start and grow their very own business.

"Many of our students have graduated from the student business incubator, have launched their businesses in the Cedar Valley or have sold out to other companies and helping them grow to other companies in the Cedar Valley. So, we really expect in the future you are going to see a lot more businesses formed by students," said Randy Pilkington, John Pappajohn Entrepreneurial Center.

The student business incubator has served hundreds of students since it began in 2005.
