Three Companies Join the Iowa Startup Accelerator

The Iowa Startup Accelerator (ISA) added Haggle, Groov, and Sprayer Mods to its 6-month entrepreneurial development program. These three startups join Tennis Line Call, Spanton Dynamics, and The Hummingbirds, who comprised the Fall 2021 accelerator cohort.

“These three exciting startups introduce unique technologies that will transform and upgrade their respective industries”, said Alex Taylor, managing director of ISA. “Additionally these early stage businesses qualify for investment funding from ISA Ventures,” continued Taylor.

  • Groov (Clive, IA) offers an innovative SaaS solution for property developers to organize and facilitate land development and sales.
  • Haggle (LeClaire, IA) has developed a unique online marketplace for farmers to barter the use and services of idle equipment with other farmers.
  • Sprayer Mods (Iowa City, IA) has developed a patent pending camera attachment for agricultural applicators to reduce the use of expensive and potentially hazardous chemicals.

The first three months of ISA programming is dedicated to reducing potential risks, establishing efficient and repeatable best practices, identifying sales and marketing channels, and generating early-stage revenue.

The second three months are dedicated to accelerating revenue growth, planning for business expansion, and preparing founders for raising additional venture capital.

“These exceptional founders join our community of 70+ companies we’ve invested in over the past eight years. They’re building and growing innovative new technology businesses right here in Iowa”, said Eric Engelmann, General Partner at ISA Ventures.

Each of these startups will be featured in a Launch Day event that kicks off EntreFest on June 8, in Iowa City.
