Innovation EXPO 2017

Save the date for Innovation EXPO to be held Tuesday, September 19th at the Coralville Marriott. 

Innovation EXPO is a statewide event established to provide a venue for Iowa entrepreneurs and business leaders and resources to come together to connect, learn and celebrate.

Stay tuned for opportunities to apply to pitch your business at PitchLab or Seed & Venture Forum or to sign up to exhibit in the Entrepreneur Showcase. Last year’s EXPO featured more than 100 entrepreneur exhibitors and presenters and drew a crowd of nearly 700 business/community leaders, financial resources, students and more.

The counseling and support we received from the EDC team during our start-up years had a huge impact on our success. And now, we continue to benefit from our EDC relationship with ongoing business and sales coaching and the connections that are helping us grow much faster than the rest of our industry. The Creative Corridor is blessed to have such a strong force for spawning new business.
