Take the Inclusive Small Business Owners Survey
Are you a minority business owner in Greater Des Moines (DSM)? If you’d like to help the Greater Des Moines Partnership understand how to serve underrepresented entrepreneurs and small business owners better, take the 2022 Inclusive Small Business Owners Survey. It takes just 5 -10 minutes of your time and will make a big difference in how our organization approaches several of our Strategic Priorities, including professional-level training, talent retention and attraction, increasing Downtown DSM foot traffic and, of course, minority-owned business support.
