Entrepreneur Field Days

Join the Greater Des Moines Partnership for the first-ever Entrepreneur Field Days series hosted across Greater Des Moines (DSM). Drawing on Iowa’s rich agriculture heritage, field days have been taking place since the turn of the 20th century. Now, this event series will expand the lessons learned from farming into all forms of entrepreneurship, spotlighting the brilliant business minds in our communities — both rural and urban, big and small — and all visionary leaders building businesses in DSM.  

All are invited. The Entrepreneur Field Day series will create opportunities for peer-to-peer knowledge and skillsets to create resilient entrepreneurs and continue to build a strong small business and startup community in Central Iowa. Entrepreneurs learn best from entrepreneurs. All are invited to bring a spirit of curiosity, shared respect and a notepad or two to capture ideas and contacts. All Entrepreneur Field Days are free and open to the public, with registration required.
