​DMACC Foundation to Award $10,000 For Iowa Business

 

Applications are being accepted for the Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC) Foundation $10,000 Entrepreneurship Competition. The competition is open to current DMACC students or DMACC alumni who are operating a business in Iowa. For complete eligibility rules or to apply, click here.

This is the second year of the DMACC Foundation $10,000 Entrepreneurship Competition. Grain bin rescue auger inventor John Ziebell, of JPZ Productions in Hubbard, was the 2014 winner.

As a firefighter, Ziebell received grain bin rescue training that included a rescue tube and handing the victim a coffee can, his invention provides a safer, more efficient way to rescue those trapped inside a grain bin. Ziebell used the $10,000 to purchase equipment that allows him to speed up production and build a higher quality grain bin rescue auger.

“It was an amazing opportunity to get chosen to win the money,” said Ziebell.

“Graduating from DMACC, living and owning a business in Iowa is great.”

This video explains more about Ziebell’s rescue auger, which is now being used by several fire departments and community grain elevators.

The winner of the DMACC Foundation $10,000 Entrepreneurship Competition will be announced at the DMACC Small Business Awards dinner September 17. Applications must be received by May 1, 2015.

The award is made possible by a generous gift to the DMACC Foundation by an anonymous donor.
