Event Description:
Square One DSM will host the second annual Accelerate DSM event at the Iowa Events Center. The event is produced in collaboration with 1 Million Cups and the Technology Association of Iowa.  Accelerate DSM is a great opportunity for entrepreneurs from throughout Central Iowa to learn from each other and from experts from all parts of the startup ecosystem. 


Torey Maerz, Founder of Rocket Referrals, which specializes in developing intuitive and effective software for businesses. Maerz will share his thoughts on what any business—from a venture-backed startup to an established brand — can learn from a bootstrapped company. Rocket Referrals started with two people, $9,000 and no investor support. Four years later, the staff has quadrupled and the company has continued turning a profit since day one.

Ben Milne, Founder and CEO of Dwolla, a digital payment network startup that has experienced strong growth. Milne will speak on accelerating a funded high-growth company.

Cayla Weisberg, Partner at InvestHER Ventures. Weisberg invests in emerging technology startups led by women. Weisberg will speak on raising capital in the Midwest. Weisberg has been an entrepreneur since age 17. She worked for one of the nation’s “100 Fastest-Growing Companies” early in her career and has since led business development initiatives for two fast-growing tech companies at a venture capital incubator.
