The entrepreneurial component provides financial assistance and/or technical assistance to early-stage businesses that are developing a new product or new technology.


The Iowa Economic Development Authority (IEDA) has retooled our direct financial assistance programs to provide the flexibility and responsiveness necessary to support business needs. The Grow Iowa Values Financial Assistance Program (GIVFAP) serves as the funding source for projects that are focused on job creation or retention, value-added agriculture and entrepreneurial efforts. This program, combined with Iowa’s nationally recognized business climate, tax incentives and proactive state government make Iowa a great place to do business.
