Business Concierge

Starting and expanding your business is hard, finding help shouldn’t be. At the UNI Center for Business Growth and Innovation, our Iowa Business Concierge program seeks to connect entrepreneurs with the right public sector organization that can help them grow, the first time, every time. With our innovative service delivery model that strives to magnify personal contact and customized assistance, the Business Concierge is much more than just another referral agency. We take the time necessary to fully understand the challenges our Iowa firms face, then bring UNI business research capacities to provide no charge, actionable, market research intelligence on top of the valuable connections we help facilitate with the entrepreneurs whom we serve. Entrepreneurs love our personal approach, and our Iowa economic development partners applaud our ability to connect them with their local business owners.

The Business Concierge went above and beyond to provide the most accurate and comprehensive research material. Their team graciously and enthusiastically met every challenge I extended to them, and I do not believe I could have drafted a viable plan without their invaluable assistance.
