    Vision of the West Des Moines Business Incubator is to:

    • The post is just the general weekly B.I.N.G. event. I did not have details about the specific event going on this week until today. I did notice I accidentally left the speakers on from last week… but I updated that yesterday. You might have to refresh your browser to see they were removed. I can go in and update with Venture School information today.
