With the 2016 presidential campaign now underway, Iowa caucus-goers have started the quadrennial process of vetting presidential aspirants in both parties. The state’s role in this process offers a unique opportunity for candidates to draw attention to Iowa’s thriving startup community as a model for states across America.
Presidential candidates will gather December 7 for the Iowa Presidential Tech Town Hall, a platform to articulate their vision for supporting the innovation economy and the good jobs it creates.
The Presidential Tech Town Hall will connect candidates to the Iowa technology and startup community, which includes more than 76,000 workers from across the state and accounts for 9% of the state’s GDP. Candidates will discuss issues like technology innovation, STEM education, broadband access and the promise of entrepreneurship.
The event is hosted by the Technology Association of Iowa and national tech group Engine, in partnership with the Cedar Rapids Gazette. Join the conversation at #IowaTech2016 and get full details at www.PresTechTownHall.org.
