How to Make Iowa the Small Business Capital of the Midwest

A recent report from WalletHub has rated Iowa the 39th best state to start a business

The report looked at the "ideal" conditions for those looking to begin a business: 

  • Overall business environment
  • Access to key business resources
  • Overall business costs

One of the areas which we must work to improve is the access to "human capital." The recent passage of Future Ready Iowa is a step in the right direction, we must do more to provide the best environment for businesses of all types and sizes. 

Part of our economic & jobs plan for Iowa calls for the creation of the Iowa Startup Fund as well as supporting even more program to create education programs to fill all our skilled workers needs.
