Entrepreneurship

One-stop shop for start-ups

Entrepreneurs are the life-blood of our healthy economy. They have the dream, vision, and drive; they put in the long hours—and they have a huge impact on jobs, taxes, and the movement of goods, services, and wealth through the local economy.

It’s natural then that Greater Dubuque's Sustainable Innovation would support our area entrepreneurs. Thanks to the generosity of Dick and Carrie Schmid, the Greater Dubuque area now has the resources to encourage, support and promote entrepreneurialism. StartUp Dubuque, brings together key partners, including the Small Business Development Center, Northeast Iowa Community College and East Central Intergovernmental Association Business Growth to serve aspiring entrepreneurs.

For the first time, Dubuque entrepreneurs have a one-stop shop for information, resources, training, and mentoring.
