If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
—Henry David Thoreau

The Iowa Entrepreneurs’ Coalition embraces Advocacy, Education and Networking for entrepreneurs and small business owners. This group links you to public and private sector resources to assist your businesses growth. You can establish a network of local entrepreneurs to share tips and problem solving techniques, get advice on profitability and career and discuss mentoring and business models.

Each meeting includes an educational opportunity and a networking component when you can swap business cards and watch your personal business directory grow! If you are a business owner, an entrepreneur or an organization that supports small business growth, you are invited to become a member of this group.
