IASourceLink is where business begins in Iowa. Our mission is to help small businesses in Iowa grow and succeed. We provide entrepreneurs with free and easy access to the help they need – when they need it.
Since 2012, our team has been developing a central place for anyone wanting to start a business in Iowa to go and feel confident with the information they are reading. As of April of 2023, we have directly assisted over 16,000 entrepreneurs (and indirectly assisted hundreds of thousands more), in all 99 Iowa counties, and across 43 U.S. States!
How can we help?
In addition to our comprehensive network of resource providers that entrepreneurs can access 24/7 via the Resource Navigator, we also provide some direct services to Iowa small business owners. We can provide your Iowa-based company with helpful referrals, and our monthly free online business webinars attract hundreds of Iowa entrepreneur participants. We also house the Business License Information Center, which can assist you in finding any additional licensing required to operate your business in Iowa.
IASourceLink has also published a variety of industry specific and general “How-to” guides to help Iowa entrepreneurs before, during, and after their business journey. Some of our guides include Starting a Business, Funding a Business, Growing a Business, Building a Website / Web Presence, and Exiting a Business. These guides can be downloaded and can be sent to your email inbox for free!
