For Scalable Startups

Our purpose is to connect entrepreneurs and scalable startup businesses with resources that help them on their path to growth.

Startup GP is a program of the Greater Peoria Economic Development Council.

The GPEDC, in collaboration with our local economic and workforce development professionals, drives economic growth in Greater Peoria through targeted business and talent development and attraction.

Our Resources

We work with several entrepreneur support organizations (ESOs) in our region whose mission is explicitly – wholly or partly – to support growth entrepreneurs in their ventures.

We also hold events to engage the entire startup community and we engage in promotional efforts to raise the profiles of our regional entrepreneurs.



Not sure if you qualify as a scalable startup? The startups we serve:

  • Want to scale and scale quickly
  • Are willing to give up equity in order to fund that growth
  • Business model can support millions in revenue potential
  • Customer base is not geographically constrained

If your company doesn’t fit this criteria, then we want to point you in the right direction. Our friends at the Small Business Development Center at Bradley University can help you.
