Small Business Stories
Iowans on the pathway to small business ownership connect and learn what is takes to be successful when they share their own stories, and hear the stories of others. The Iowa Center creates networking opportunities for our clients to connect with Iowa’s business and community leaders, and with each other. Sharing their dreams, victories, and struggles builds community connections and support to propel them to overcome obstacles and achieve their dreams. The Iowa Center invites you to join us in celebrating our client successes!
