Turning Dreams Into Plans
Making the leap from vision to success takes courage, and it also takes action. We help you turn your entrepreneurial spirit into a plan to create and grow your business, support your family, and change your community from the inside out.
Investing in Iowa's Ideas
Without access to traditional lending, starting or growing a small business is next to impossible. Our loans up to $50,000, combined with business support, can help you launch an idea or take an existing business to the next level.
Creating Connections That Matter
It’s not just who you know—it’s who knows you. We facilitate building strong personal and social relationships while we increase the visibility of Iowa’s small business community.

COVID-19 Small Business Resources
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Iowa Center office is working remote and our physical office is closed, including our tax clinic. We will continue to support your small business journey via phone, email and virtual meetings until we reopen (date is pending).
The Iowa Center is committed to empowering people to strengthen and stabilize their financial futures through business ownership and investment.
It is our belief that to be successful in small business, entrepreneurs need support in three core areas: education, capital, and networking. We have built key programs that support these core areas and empower individuals to succeed, families to prosper, and communities to thrive. Success to us is people supporting themselves and their families through the execution of their own ideas.

Co-Founder & CEO
BLK & Bold
The Iowa Center allowed me to set awareness of myself and where I was at, which gave me a gauge for my success. They also gave me an opportunity to support and meet other women in the community!
Two Lane Chiropractic
When I found the Iowa Center for Economic Success, I was going through a split professionally and personally. I needed to learn more of the business and financial side of running a business but had no time to go back to school because I was still running my business. The Iowa Center aligned perfectly with my time and availability. They gave me the tools to be a smarter business owner and gave me a reliable network.
I firmly believe I would not have started my own business had I not found The Iowa Center. It would have remained an idea…and never actually brought to fruition.
