Iowa is more than a flyover state. CEOs, founders, and entrepreneurs are building and growing companies in Iowa on a daily basis. Our goal is to highlight those companies in order to inspire builders and growers to innovate and chase their dreams.
I am a lifelong Iowan. My parents met while they were attending Iowa State University. I attended the University of Northern Iowa and graduated in 2011. My wife, Emily is also a lifelong Iowan and grew up in Northern Iowa and graduated from Drake University in 2014. After I graduated in 2011, I moved to Kansas City where I had the opportunity to travel throughout the Midwest, and I truly began to appreciate Iowa. Emily and I moved back to Iowa in 2017 and currently reside in Mason City.
Iowans are naturally modest and humble, but we need to take pride in our stories and be proud of who we are and what we have built so we can inspire future entrepreneurs and founders. Iowa has so much to offer and so much to grow!
