About the Accelerator
Iowa Startup Accelerator (ISA), supported by ISA Ventures and driven by NewBoCo, is a unique 6-month accelerator with rolling admission and access to four distinct stages of investment for Iowa-based startup businesses. The accelerator program provides investment capital and a stage-specific bundle of resources appropriate for scaling your startup.
Companies begin the Accelerator at the Foundation stage with a $25K investment with potential for an additional $75K investment as mutually established benchmarks are achieved. Unlike most accelerators, ISA grows with companies, and provides a progression of resources appropriate for each stage.
