Partnership’s Small Business Hub Expands to Include More Resources

Resource Compass and Business Counseling

August 17, 2023

The DSM community has a wide range of organizations that can serve as resource partners for small businesses and startup companies to grow their businesses, including the Greater Des Moines Partnership’s Small Business Hub. The Small Business Hub is expanding with the launch of two online news resources. These small business resources will support local small business owners and entrepreneurs. First, a Resource Compass will include information from Greater Des Moines (DSM) organizations that can offer startup companies and small businesses everything from legal resources to investment opportunities to networking. If you’re looking to grow your business and get to the next level in your entrepreneurial journey, The Partnership’s business counseling services will put you in touch with a network that can offer advice and mentoring.

Resource Compass

Search by interest, expertise, stage, location and more within the Resource Compass. Whether you’re at the idea stage or first round of investment stage, you can find information for investors or programs that will help you stay accountable. Search for mentorship opportunities, education and training or find resources for sales and customer acquisition. There is a wide array of resources available to you.

Business Counseling

Looking for a way to receive counseling as you embark on your startup journey? Small business success is waiting for you, and all it takes is a quick form of completion to find someone to advise you. Enter information about yourself and your business, including industry and stage of business to get started through the Business Counseling service.
