The US Economic Development Administration announced that the Iowa Innovation Corporation (IICorp) will receive one of 52 awards being made in 2020 as part of their Build to Scale (B2S) program (formerly known as the Regional Innovation Strategies program).
The Iowa G2M Program has two components:
First, an Iowa G2M Accelerator program will be established to provide support for commercial product development and fund-raising needs through advanced training in sales, marketing, corporate development, and finance. This program will provide access to a variety of business support services.
Second, an online resource guide focusing on the needs of high-tech startups will be developed and deployed as a means through which entrepreneurs can connect with providers across Iowa.
The project partners intend to launch the new accelerator program in early 2021 and an application process will be announced soon. Initial roll-out of the online resource guide is targeted for late 2020.
