Des Moines Partnership Launches Innovation Dashboard To Measure Iowa's Entrepreneurial Ecosystem

Posted by Sophie Troxell on Jan 05, 2022

The Des Moines Partnership is working with Clay & Milk to create a statewide dashboard to better track and measure the pulse of Iowa's entrepreneurial and startup activity. The Innovation Dashboard, launched on January 5th, provides a comprehensive indicator of entrepreneurial activity in the state of Iowa. Alongside this initiative, Iowa founders are encouraged to take the Iowa Founder Survey. This survey will deep-dive into questions on the fundraising climate, working environments, demographics, challenges of operating a startup, and future outlooks.

The survey opens on January 5th and will close in six weeks, on February 18th. All participants who take the survey will be entered to win $500!
