The Innovation Lab Launches Ecosystem Initiative Seed Funding Applications

Thanks to funding from a Dubuque County Grant, The Innovation Lab is excited to launch applications for Ecosystem Initiative Seed Funding as a part of the Entrepreneurship Hub project. Organizations can apply for funding for new programs or services that will impact entrepreneurs in Dubuque County.

Through a survey of entrepreneurs, we identified gaps in our entrepreneurial ecosystem in Dubuque County. Applicants can apply for initiatives that address one of these identified gaps:

  • Knowledge of and access to market research data and strategies

  • Knowledge of and access to product design/prototyping services

  • Availability of peer learning opportunities

  • Knowledge of and access to technical assistance or educational opportunities

  • Another ecosystem gap your organization has identified

If you have an idea for addressing one of the identified gaps in our entrepreneurial ecosystem, click the link below to learn more and access the application.
