Iowa AgriTech Accelerator closing its doors

Here’s an announcement that we don’t usually see, particularly with the corporate sponsorship that is mentioned.

The Iowa AgriTech Accelerator no longer will provide new programming as the organization dissolves. However, businesses already receiving funds from the organization will continue to receive that money, and existing mentorships still will be in place.

The Greater Des Moines Partnership and the Cultivation Corridor started the Des Moines-based accelerator in 2016. Investors included John Deere, Sukup Manufacturing, Kent Corporation, and Grinnell Mutual.
