The UNI Center for Business Growth and Innovation was the first to pioneer the production of high quality online, interactive, business seminars for entrepreneurs starting in 2003 – back when it was necessary to explain what the word “webinar” meant.

With our University of Northern Iowa roots, we understand online learning and adult education. Our staff are experts at not just moderating each presentation, but in making sure that the technology just works- no matter the skill level of the participants who join us. Our webinars have seen a tremendous response from business owners all across the nation, capturing attendees from every county in Iowa, and all across the US, and resulting in tens of thousands of participants and views.

We make every presentation accessible on IASourceLink, and partnership roles with state agencies like the Iowa Department of Revenue, South Dakota Department of Revenue, Iowa Association of Business and Industry, and more(!), all ensure we can leverage their deep specialized knowledge and put it to good use with our massive business owner reach. These online sessions are collaboratively driven and can be found 24/7 on our searchable video learning library developed via a unique partnership with Iowa Farm Bureau Renew Rural Iowa called Pathways.

Thank you for the free webinars. I find them very easy to use with no travel or fee involved. They have speakers that really know their topic as well.
