Beginning this month, every new business that completes its registration process with the state of Iowa will receive a new email or flyer directing them to, a free online resource through the Iowa Economic Development Authority and the University of Northern Iowa’s Center for Business Growth and Innovation. The new link connects entrepreneurs and small businesses to more than 360 resource providers across Iowa, Secretary of State Paul Pate said in a statement. About 24,000 new business entities register with the Iowa Secretary of State’s Office each year.
