We're about a week and a half out from the kick off of Paul Singh's Iowa Tech Tour! All in, we're putting together 18 events that week for a cross section of founders, investors, policy makers and the overall innovation community here in Iowa. The official tour website is about 95% complete (remember to click on the "Count Me In!" button) and you can now use that to RSVP to individual events.
We've had the good fortune to be able to schedule events in Des Moines, Cedar Rapids and Ames that week so I hope that you'll be able to join us somewhere along the ride. If you're coming into Des Moines for the tour and need a place to land in between events or a spot to get work done for the day, come see us at Gravitate where we are hosting free/open coworking all week long. Our friends at Vault Coworking & Collaboration Space are making their space available on Thursday 7/21 for anyone needing a spot the day that the tour is visiting Cedar Rapids.
We're planning several opportunities throughout the week to meet one-on-one with Paul to talk about your company or project during Office Hours. These opportunities are limited, however, so you'll need to request a meeting here. Paul is open to meeting with founders and investors at all stages but will choose the ones he thinks he can provide the best feedback to during the time that is available.
