On the first Friday of every month, join the Iowa Center for Economic Success to hear the savvy, successful business owners + entrepreneurs of Des Moines share their story. In a laid-back environment, you’ll catch some words of wisdom from women + men who have been through it before—and maybe walk away with a new connection (or two).
Sessions are completely free and open to the public, and are held from noon-1pm. This First Friday will be held at The Iowa Center, at 8345 University Blvd, Suite 1F. Seating is first come, first served. Lunch is not provided, though we encourage you to bring your own if you’d like.
On July 7, we’ll hear from local business owner, Leng Vong Reiff.
