Innovate & Grow

UI Partners was created by The University of Iowa specifically to help small Iowa companies innovate and grow. We work directly with businesses to solve their information technology (IT) challenges, using practical insights and ideas drawn from University faculty, staff, and students.
We are working to create a statewide network of integrated engagement centers to assist small businesses.

We have helped many local businesses.

We Love Our Clients

Here’s what they have to say…

Fannie Hungerford Yoga

“First of all, I want to say that I LOVE my website and I feel super excited about presenting it and the work they have done.  The site totally represents me and my business.  

Also, what is perhaps most important, is in our last two-three meetings they taught me how to update my site or create new attributes to my site.  This feels SO empowering and helpful.”

– Fannie Hungerford
