You may have read an article in the Des Moines Register describing how West Des Moines business and government officials want to attract more startup businesses. The city plans to open a business incubator in October in hopes of bringing small businesses and job growth to West Des Moines, which has nearly 60,000 residents.
We will have Chris Voggesser of the West Des Moines Development Connection as our special guest for The October 5 NIEC Meeting - Chris will fill us in on the details surrounding the new business incubator scheduled to open soon in West Des Moines.
"You've got to have that mix, which makes up the pulse of your community," said Chris Voggesser, who heads West Des Moines' newly merged Chamber of Commerce and Development Connection. "It takes all kinds to give a city life."
The incubator will be a partnership between the city of West Des Moines and the Small Business Development Center, which will move from its office in Urbandale to a building at 2829 Westown Parkway starting Friday. The facility will probably be ready Oct. 11, and eventually host up to 14 businesses.
If the changes affect your plans to attend, please take a moment to update your RSVP. (You can RSVP "No" or "Maybe" as well as "Yes".)
