Decorah Area Chamber of Commerce - Event Information

Event Name:Winneshiek Idea House
Event Type(s):Community Event
Description:Join us for the second annual Winneshiek Idea House! Last year's event was full of energy and excitement, and we're expecting more of the same this year.

This event is for anyone interested in building a more resilient and sustainable Winneshiek County. Our focus this year is on *local impact investing*—how we can use our dollars and time and skills to improve our community & create a secure future for ourselves and our neighbors.

During the *Trout Tank* portion of the evening four fabulous entrepreneurs will present their business ideas and needs. After each five-minute presentation, attendees (you!) will be able to ask clarifying questions. Then we share out loud how we’re willing to support each entrepreneur. Community members may “invest” loans or gifts of money, in-kind offers, expertise, neighborliness, and more to support their favorite local enterprises. Think of it as crowdfunding in real time!

The evening will conclude with a an opportunity for you to meet the entrepreneurs and network with other attendees. We'll also have a *Needs and Offers Wall* that you can peruse. Grab a beverage and stay for a while!

Tickets are available at a sliding scale price ($5–$25). Nobody will be turned away due to lack of funds. Register at
