Dwolla to Host Event on Funding Startup Businesses in the Midwest

Kevin Hardy reported earlier this month at The Des Moines Register Online that, “Dwolla will host an event March 20 to discuss funding sources for Iowa startup companies.

“The event, called Monetery, will broadly focus on ‘building value,’ with specific emphasis on securing investments for new businesses.

“‘The reason we’ve focused so heavily on investors is that it’s clear that the Midwest has some really meaningful divides between Seed to IPO support. While it’s been done, it’s incredibly rare,’ Dwolla founder and CEO Ben Milne wrote on the company blog. ‘As various Midwest ecosystems are getting built, we are excited to hear from people who have built strong ecosystems in their city in the past, or are currently doing so.'”

The article noted that, “Moderators include Debi Durham, director of the Iowa Economic Development Authority; Brian Waller, president of the Technology Association of Iowa; Danny Schreiber, marketing director at Zapier; and Lynn Hicks, opinion editor at the Des Moines Register.

“The event is limited to 200 people. Tickets are available on Dwolla’s website.”
