We'll talk about this vision of StartupCity and his new role at 451 Research.
Beau Fodor will also come by for a discussion about Panache, his role as the inventor of The Gay Wedding Planner and what economic impact same-sex marriages has brought to the Des Moines Metro. Beau has worked with Martha Stewart Living, Ralph Lauren/POLO, Better Homes & Gardens as well as Christian Dior. Some thoughts on why Des Moines and we'll visit a bit about being a local foodie. Fun stuff in the second half hour.
In addition Chip Douglas visits the Iowa Distilling Company of Cumming and we'll learn more about the Indian grocery business and what it means to the thousands of Indians who live in the Metro. Plus the stocks of local interest and the agriculture report. Lots of information packed into the hour. We're glad you'll be with us on Launch Day for Insight on Business the News Hour.
