“Innovation is critical for the future of Iowa’s economy. Publications like the innovationIOWA Magazine that highlight the work going on around our state – in small and large businesses, in academia, in start-ups – are so important in advancing that very culture.”
Debi Durham, Director, Iowa Economic Development Authority
A total of 10,000 copies are printed. The publication is also unveiled at an annual Launch Party hosted by our presenting sponsor that attracts hundreds of statewide leaders. It is then distributed statewide by Business Record in its June statewide edition, which also includes Business Record Iowa, a custom publication for the Iowa Association of Business & Industry and its members. Additional distribution includes Iowa educational institutions, manufacturers, agricultural and technology companies and industry associations.
“innovationIOWA captures the excitement and energy in the region’s vibrant agribusiness and bioscience region. We are so thrilled about its publication and we use the magazine to give to people and companies who are visiting to learn more about Iowa’s core innovation sectors.”
Bill Northey, Secretary of Agriculture, Iowa
