Business Grant for Iowans

Rob Williams, University of Northern Iowa
Presented Thursday, August 22nd at Noon (Central)
Webinar PowerPoint: Grant Money for Iowans to Start or Expand Their Business

We hear it all the time from entrepreneurs: 'I just need a little bit of cash to launch my entrepreneurial idea', or 'are there grants available to help me grow my business?'

Dream Big Grow Here WebinarUNI Center for Business Growth and Innovation has teamed with dozens of statewide sponsors to create an online business grant contest for Iowans. Dream Big, Grow Here is an opportunity for folks in Iowa to win one of ten $5,000 business grants, then go on to compete for an additional $10,000 grand prize! In this free business webinar, Rob Williams with the UNI ​CBGI team will cover the high level contest details for each region, explain the history of the contest, and share some tips for how to win.

The Dream Big, Grow Here contest could not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors. Please be sure to visit their websites and learn more about how they help the Iowa small business community: Iowa Bankers Association; Renew Rural Iowa; Delta Dental; Iowa Economic Development Authority; Technology Association of Iowa; and VentureNet Iowa.
