Congratulations to the Okoboji Entrepreneurial Class of 2016. This was the 11th year of OEI and these students from Buena Vista University, Iowa Lakes Community College, Iowa State University, University of Iowa and University of Northern Iowa did not disappoint. 

These students worked hard all last week to build entrepreneurial skills and create a network of friends and possible advisors for their future endeavors.

A graduation luncheon was held Friday, Aug. 12, at the Lakes Pearson Arts Center following the students' successful completion of the course.

The Iowa Lakes Corridor would like to thank the students for their participation and hard work, the OEI faculty and support staff from the partner academic institutes, our generous sponsors, host families and everyone who participated, attended and especially hosted the networking events throughout the week.
