Innovation EXPO 2014 events are designed for entrepreneurs, creatives, financial resources and business leaders in Iowa to connect, help our region grow more new business, create jobs, keep our region vibrant and globally competitive - and to celebrate entrepreneurs.
It's really all about the entrepreneurs. Budding or existing - they are our future.
The innovators. The risk takers. The job creators.
Meet dozens of entrepreneurs. See & touch their products. Connect with potential partners.
Connect. Learn. Celebrate.
