ISU Entrepreneur Club field trip: Des Moines Startup Community

Date & Time Wednesday, April 20 11:45am
Location Global Insurance Accelerator and Gravitate DSM
Contact Nolan Herlocker, nolanh12@iastate.edu

Join the ISU Entrepreneur Club as we travel to downtown Des Moines to checkout the startup community!  We will first be stopping at the Global Insurance Accelerator located in the trendy East Village.  There we will get the chance to meet with the 6 startups going through the 100-day accelerator with managing director, Brian Hemesath.

Next up, we will get the opportunity to tour the downtown coworking space, Gravitate.   Founder Geoff Wood will provide a tour and oversight on the trend of coworking in the entrepreneurial ecosystem with potential to hear from startups that work out of the space!

Free transportation will be provided through the club and the plan will be to leave Ames at 4:45pm sharp to arrive at the Global Insurance Accelerator by 5:30pm.  Spots are now full for free transportation.

Students who wish to drive on their own can meet at either location.  We are tentatively planning to be at each location at:

5:30-6:15pm Global Insurance Accelerator.  Location: 321 E. Walnut, Suite 130, Des Moines, IA 50309

6:30-7:30pm Gravitate DSM.  Location:  206 6th Ave, third floor, Des Moines, IA 50309

Plan is to arrive back to Ames around 8pm for anyone riding with the provided transportation.
