Learn more about our Management Team and our Expert Panels:
Building a business is a social endeavor involving the mobilization of skills, expertise, entrepreneurial experience and capital sources. It is in this context that VentureNet Iowa acts as a nexus to connect the idea to the resources appropriate to a company’s stage of development. VentureNet Iowa continues to build upon the base of resources from connections throughout the state and beyond. These connections are organized among several broad categories that include:
• A common platform for deal input, aggregation and consideration – Angelsoft
• Panels of evaluators to assist in understanding and assessing the idea and its market potential –ExpertNet Iowa
• Potential mentors, advisers and management – TalentNet Iowa
• Sources of capital and in-kind assistance; includes both private and public entitites and programs –ResourceNet
Given the broad spectrum of technologies that we see on a continual basis and the deep vertical knowledge that underlies each idea or product, we seek out and rely upon the assistance of individuals drawn from our resource databases.
As a prelude to meeting with us, we ask that each company provide some preliminary information about their business. This is accessed through the “Apply to VentureNet Iowa” tab. It is through this link where the applicant will be connected to Angelsoft where the company can register & provide answers to questions about the venture as well as post any digital material that is deemed pertinent. Once this application is completed, we receive an email acknowledgment and will then contact the company to set-up a meeting or teleconference.
