The Iowa Association of Business and Industry (ABI) supports the work of the ICIC to build the seed and venture capital industry that serves Iowa entrepreneurs.

ABI members are invited to join the ICIC Tax Credit Purchase Consortium, a no-cost and no-risk way to encourage venture investing in Iowa.

What is the ICIC Tax Credit Purchase Consortium?

The ICIC Tax Credit Purchase Consortium is a no-cost, no-risk way for businesses and individuals to help attract capital to Iowa's seed and venture capital industry. Consortium members play a vital role in building Iowa's entrepreneurial ecosystem:

    • The ICIC uses contingent tax credit contracts to attract investment capital
    • Tax credits are sold when available to Consortium members
    • At no cost, members trade dollars for tax credits, capped at their total tax liability

What to Expect — A growing network of seed and venture investors

Consortium members support ICIC's work to bring a dozen or more new venture capital funds to Iowa:

    • Venture funds invest in a range of Iowa companies, from seed to later stage
    • Funds provide know-how to new startups and work to grow established companies
    • Funds bring knowledge of successful venture investing to Iowa
    • Successful funds spur the formation of new venture teams in Iowa
