The Iowa Startup Fair takes place on January 31, 2012 from 3 to 6 PM in various locations around downtown Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Cedar Falls and Pella. More than 80 companies will be exhibiting throughout the state.

There are more than 50 businesses exhibiting at the Des Moines locations. Those locations are the StartupCity Des Moines offices, 317 Sixth Avenue, Fifth Floor; Amici Expresso, 206 Sixth Avenue; Foundry Coworking, 418 6th Avenue, skywalk level; and the BitMethod Headquarters, 418 6th Ave., 12th Floor.

The event is designed to give the community, investors and business people a look at the exciting things Iowa business startups are accomplishing.

I’ll be exhibiting with my startup, NotifyWorks, a cloud based software system that allows lawyers, financial advisors and other professionals to send automated email notifications to their clients even when they are away from their desks or working on something else. Come check us out!
