About Advance Iowa


Paul Kinghorn


Two years ago the Center for Business Growth & Innovation merged with ADVANCE IOWA with one simple goal: to continue to assist small and mid-sized enterprises as a trusted advisor. Since then, we invested and rethought our services and programs. 

We may be changing the way we look, but our goals remain the same. We’re still here to create business growth and foundations for sustainable change just as our name promises. The same way we push your business beyond its boundaries, we’re going beyond ours as well. 

We don’t just strive to help small to medium businesses in Iowa, we go out of state to help enterprises everywhere. Here are some statistics to consider:


Something to think about...

Our BUSINESS SOLUTIONS have been divided and regrouped them into four key groups and the first of four is titled Business Growth & Innovation.

Business GROWTH & Innovation

Business Ownership TRANSITION

Seminars, TRAINING & Workshops

Network, CONNECTING, Events & Activities

Our team assists business leaders in gaining the skills needed to strategically plan for sustainable and profitable growth, value creation and the eventual transition of ownership.
