Iowa Economic Development Authority (IEDA) – Demonstration Fund

The Iowa Economic Development Authority’s Demonstration Fund provides financial assistance to support high technology prototype and concept development activities.


The Demonstration Fund supports commercialization activities for small and medium-sized Iowa companies in the advanced manufacturing, bioscience and information technology industries. Projects must have the clear potential to lead to the creation of commercially viable products or services. The primary objective of the fund is to help businesses with a high-growth potential reach a position where they are able to attract later stage private sector funding.
