    The Iowa Fund of Funds is a $100 million program organized by the Iowa Capital Investment Corporation (ICIC). In 2005 ICIC engaged Cimarron Capital Associates I, LLC as the professional manager of the Iowa Fund of Funds program. The program, which raises private investment capital supported by contingent state tax credits, operates without State appropriations. No contingent tax credits have been used nor projected to be used to-date. As a result, there has been no cost to taxpayers to create and operate ICIC nor the IFOF. The Iowa Fund of Funds is designed to help build a professional venture capital industry to serve Iowa entrepreneurs. ICIC is a private, non-profit organization authorized by Iowa statute to serve as General Partner of the Fund of Funds and provide oversight and guidance to the Fund Manager. The first investment by an ICIC-supported venture fund in an Iowa company was made in 2007.
