It's all about the network effect.
Welcome to the insurance innovation capital.

Why insurance? Opportunity. More than you can imagine.

Insurance represents everything a forward-thinking entrepreneur could want:
The GIA's investors, which are insurance carriers, provide financial support to make the GIA possible. But more than that, each company is involved at the deepest levels as mentors and potential partners and/or investors. This makes the GIA truly unique in the world of accelerators.

In addition to access to our investors' decision makers, our mentors' network reaches further into the insurance ecosystem. This gives our teams access to countless insurance companies inside and outside of Iowa.

If you are innovating insurance, there is no better place to be than Des Moines.

Speaking of Des Moines... why?

With over 200 insurance companies domiciled in Iowa and ten's of thousands of insurance workers in the metro area, Des Moines has the resources to accelerate your business.
