The Startup Journey Isn’t Easy

As a founder, new hurdles can come up suddenly. They might leave you questioning your plans and wondering what to do next.

As a lean team or team of one, you don’t always have the resources or relationships to navigate these challenges and find answers to your questions.

But you don’t have to figure it out on your own.

Are You a High-Tech, Research-Driven Company in Iowa?

If so, the Iowa G2M Accelerator is your all-in-one resource to:

Position Your Startup for Investment

Expand Your Base of Iowa Connections

Become a Well-Rounded Leader

Count on the Iowa G2M Accelerator as Your Business Advisor, Instructor, and Mentor

With a team of experienced, industry-specific professionals and a cohort of fellow founders on your side, you can scale your startup faster and troubleshoot issues before they threaten to interrupt your progress.

As a previous accelerator or development program participant, the Iowa G2M Accelerator’s six-month program allows you to build on the foundational skills you’ve learned and advancements you’ve made in group and one-on-one settings.

Our Program is Different From Other Accelerators

Three elements, central to the Iowa G2M Accelerator experience, ensure your time in a cohort is spent effectively.


1-on-1 Mentorship

Early in the program you are paired with a seasoned mentor with experience in your industry. Available to you throughout the program, they come alongside you to help you plan for the future, address issues, and offer personalized guidance.

Pro Bono Business Support

As you work through the program, take advantage of services from providers in a range of areas, including law, finance, branding, marketing, HR, and recruiting who have agreed to work with cohort members at no cost.

Group Workshops

If you wish you could go back to relearn or build on the critical startup curriculum you’ve already worked through–sales, leadership, talent acquisition, investments, and more–you’ll find answers and strengthen your skills during your time in the cohort.
