The countdown is on!
There are 15 days until the next major milestone in Iowa's startup community. Be part of it!
RSVP today for the Iowa Startup Accelerator Launch Day:
On November 6th, ten startup teams from around the world - from Israel, Australia, New York, Texas, California, Delaware and Kansas and three from Iowa - will launch their companies from Cedar Rapids. You can read more about the teams here.
Don't miss this chance to see their progress, hear some HUGE announcements, and cheer them on as they scale to grow.
Just three months ago, these entrepreneurs came here, to Cedar Rapids, to focus on their high-growth business ideas. Since then, they've talked to 100 potential customers, met with 100 mentors, and pitched 100 investors. In the process they have laughed, cried, rebranded and pivoted to form new companies with great potential.
Get to know the future employers of our economy, cheer them on as they launch their companies, and celebrate this next important milestone in growing Iowa's innovation community.
