At the Iowa Innovation Corporation, we’re looking at things differently. We have to because the future of Iowa’s economy depends on it. We are building on years of public/private collaboration to grow Iowa’s innovation economy so that Iowa’s businesses have the infrastructure and talent to succeed.
That means we’re working with businesses, government, start-ups, existing companies, nonprofits, universities, community colleges and anyone in the business of creating jobs and growth to ensure we have the tools necessary to succeed.
With thousands of hours of donated executive time and corporate money, the state’s largest employers and smallest start-ups have created a lean economic development model for the 21st century economy. This focused and high performing economic development strategy for the knowledge-based global economy accelerates the development of good ideas into bankable ventures to grow the state’s economy and attract talent.
And, that’s our focus. We are facilitators. We’re committed to carrying on the great tradition of Iowa innovation because it is a necessary part of economic development.
