Who can apply?

Startups who have a prototype ready to validate can benefit the most from our mentoring and program. But we encourage startups at all stages to apply.

Do we need to be US citizens to apply?

No. Application is open to startups from all over the world. If you’re not a US citizen, you’ll need to obtain a visa to participate if selected.

How much do you invest?

The Iowa AgriTech Accelerator invests 40K in exchange for 6% equity. We also invest 31K in the form of good and services – please refer to our Program Highlights for more information.

Do I need to be physically present during the program?

Yes. One founder per startup is required to be physically located in Des Moines for the duration of the program.

I see I can apply in F6S and Gust – is one preferred over the other?

No. Only one application per company is required. Feel free to select whichever platform you are most comfortable in.

When is the deadline for 2020 applications?

Applications close on May 1, 2020 at 11:59PM Central Standard Time.
