Nancy Mwirotsi

I help young people, mainly minorities, girls, and women with exploring opportunities in STEM and entrepreneurship so that we can get the most out of poverty by introducing skills that will help increase their incomes.

Can accomplish anything without limits

Belange Mutunda

I make sustainable clothing, accessories, and home décor using recycled materials like scrap fabrics , plastics etc… With the benefits from my sales I sponsor children in Zinder, Niger to pursue their high school education through a third party non-profit called The Great Academy.

Joanne Kuster

Entrepreneur + Business Owner, DynaMinds Publishing

I help women learn and gain confidence to be entrepreneurs and investors so they can build wealth and leave a legacy.

Natalie Dayton

Co-Founder, The Drop

I help our community with finding the best health and wellness resources in the metro so that they can be happy, healthy, and have a whole lot of fun while they’re at it.

Lauren Jones

I help rural Iowans access food with a grocery store on wheels so that everybody in Iowa has access to food.

Stephanie Bias

Entrepreneur + Co-Owner, Camp Aramoni

Camp Aramoni is a unique venue for luxury camping and special events that helps people with busy schedules unwind and create new memories.

The most courageous thing I’ve ever done is…lead a group of vegan activists in a hostile environment. We advocated for the ethical treatment of animals while kindly encouraging people to think about where the food on their plate comes from.

Michelle Book

President and CEO, Food Bank of Iowa

I encourage my team to be their best so struggling Iowans will have food to eat. My favorite place to create is in my kitchen.
