RESEARCH, INNOVATION, & COMMERCIALIZATION
The best business plan promotes strong industry clusters stimulated by aggressive innovation while advocating for policies that support cluster success within a competitive economy. Businesses that lead their industries in ideas, innovation, and market-reach thrive and have great staying power. They also tend to attract a more educated and skilled talent pool, one that naturally networks across occupational communities while creating economic activity that resists migration and sustains local economies. The Iowa Business Council supports policy initiatives that mitigate competitive weaknesses or leverage advantages pertaining to innovative research, commercialization, and the resulting attraction of a highly skilled and educated workforce.
