The first ever Iowa Startup Fair is taking place on Tuesday, January 31, 2012 from 3 to 6 pm. During the fair, new businesses will set up informational tables to showcase thier projects for an audience of business, investment, civic and other community members.

In Des Moines, the Startup Fair locations will be at the Midland, Bank of America and Liberty Buildings. In Cedar Rapids/Iowa City, Vault Co-Working will host. A location in Pella has not yet been determined and other regions in Iowa will be added soon according to the site.

I’ve decided to participate in Des Moines with my new startup, NotifyWorks. Notifyworks is a web-based automated email system that enables lawyers and other professionals to proactively notify their clients of dates and deadlines.
