As the Global Insurance Accelerator's 2018 cohort begins their work here in central IA, FMH looks forward to mentoring and engaging these innovators who share our enthusiasm for advancing the insurance and agriculture industries. FMH is an original investor in both the Global Insurance Accelerator and Iowa Agritech Accelerator. We are proud to support each of these incubator programs that bring startups to the Des Moines area to participate in 100 days of learning, outreach, networking, and presentations.
Global Insurance Accelerator
The Greater Des Moines Partnership’s Global Insurance Accelerator (GIA) is a mentor-driven business accelerator designed to foster innovation in the insurance industry through startups targeting the global insurance industry.
