We are very pleased to announce that on January 31st, between 3pm and 6pm, we will be holding our first Iowa Startup Fair.  The ISF is a statewide opportunity for Iowa technology startups to show off their products and services at no cost to the local community.  We will be announcing additional locations throughout the next week however our first location is Silicon Sixth Avenue in Downtown Des Moines.  We’ll have startups at multiple locations along the street, in the Bank of America Building, Midlands Building, and Liberty Building.

Our registration page for startups is now available here, so if you are a startup that wants to meet customers and the local community, please register and let us know your preferred location!  We’ll have more locations coming online soon so if you are elsewhere in Iowa other than Des Moines, please register so we can get an idea of the size/location of venues we’ll need.

If you are a venue or destination and want to host a piece of the Fair, please reach out to Becky via email at becky@startupcitydsm.com

We look forward to seeing you at the Fair!

UPDATE: Since yesterday, we’ve added THREE additional locations throughout Iowa and have over twenty startups registered.  We are pleased to announce that Cedar Rapids (The Vault/EDC), Pella (Central College and Veel Hoeden) and Cedar Falls (Far Reach) will all be hosting local Iowa Startup Fairs!
