Frequently Asked Questions

How will the Tech Crawl Work?
To kick things everyone will start at the same location, where you will be given a wristband and a map with directions to each of the other locations.

Following the kickoff, attendees will have the next few hours to attend three different locations in Downtown Des Moines.

To wrap up the Tech Crawl, everyone will meet back up at Gravitate Coworking. Several tables will be setup at Gravitate, with companies showcasing their products and sharing job opportunities. Those who stop at each participating location will receive a DSM Tech Crawl pint glass!
