Business Growth and Innovation


Two years ago the Center for Business Growth & Innovation (CBGI) joined forces with ADVANCE IOWA. Together, we strive to help businesses in and beyond Iowa borders.

Both of our offices share two things. The first are the marketing and brand strategies. The second shared item is a simple goal which is to continue to assist small and mid-sized enterprises as trusted advisors. This enables both teams to provide services and programs designed to promote business growth and profitability. As our client demographic widens, our focus on strategic planning, application, and execution of business finance and innovation has narrowed. 

Our CBGI team provides planning services and technical assistance for the development of actionable strategies for sustainable change. One excellent example is the Foundry 4.0 project the team is a partner of.
