One of the speakers there was Scott Case, the CEO of StartupAmerica. He and I had an opportunity to speak Thursday night about the StartupTennessee and StartupConnecticut efforts underway, and it sounded much like the amazing things going on in Iowa. I mentioned this to him, and said we should add Iowa to his list of regions supporting the StartupAmerica goals (which we already are).
So lets do this thing.
This is a link to a google doc that I am asking that you add your expertise and knowledge to, with the goal to aggregate a list of the efforts already underway (or about to be) in the state in the startup arena.
Lets build this mega-franken-doc, put a bow on it, and take it to the Governor. We are already doing so much more than can be enumerated, so with a little bit of effort, we'll get some much-overdue recognition for this State and how much we kick ass.
