As we focus on engaging and connecting the community this fall, we’re partnering with UP Global on its upcoming UP America Summit, and today have details to share about the October event. 

The UP America Summit October 22–24 brings together an invited group of startup community leaders—Startup America Champions, Startup Weekend organizers, facilitators and more—from across North America to Iowa City and Cedar Rapids. Our role in this partnership will help introduce Summit visitors to what’s happening in the state and our region, and we’re hosting two events with the University of Iowa: Startup Stories and the Welcome to the Silicon Prairie Party.

The first event, Startup Stories, is a discussion for Iowa students where Summit attendees and founders from across the Silicon Prairie will tell their startup story in the round (founders can reach out to Regan Carrizales at regan@siliconprairienews.com about the opportunity). They’ll share advice, provide tips on how to get started and spend time one-on-one with University of Iowa students. Immediately following Startup Stories, we’ll kick off the Summit festivities with an open-to-the-public Silicon Prairie Party where startup enthusiasts from across the region are invited to connect with one another and to acquaint Summit attendees to our region.
