Proving Des Moines is NOT boring

January Startup Drinks – Kicking off the new year

This event is pretty simple for anyone looking to stop out once a month and catch the entrepreneurial vibe in Des Moines.  The final Dsm Startup Drinks of 2012, hosted at Saturday Manufacturing, closed out the year strong by showing there’s a lot more people ready to dive in and find out what’s going on while enjoying a few brews.

Held on the 4th Tuesday of every month, Startup Drinks is drawing a growing crowd of tech people, local business owners and those who just want to sit in without feeling like they’re at a formal event.  The concept is simple: just show up, grab your drink and find someone who came down for the same reason you did.
