In 2015, then Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds and Debi Durham, Director of Iowa Economic Development Authority and Iowa Finance Authority, approached The Iowa Center with an idea. Women were not investing in the same way as our male counterparts; they wanted to change that and thought we were just the organization to make it happen. Within the year, The Iowa Center had created FIN Capital, the state’s first all-female angel investing group.
In its beginning, we flew in experts from across the country to educate our members on angel investing with the hope these women would take the lead and eventually become the experts that were educating other angels around the country. Fast forward to 2020, with more than 1.1 million in investments, The Iowa Center is very proud to announce that FIN Capital has now spun off to be its own independent organization of female angel investors.
