Indianola-based LaunchPad65, formerly the Indianola Development Association, recently joined The Emerge Foundation's Carver Connections Memorandum of Understanding. Plans are now underway for the two groups to jointly host a south-central Iowa technology demonstration day and LaunchPad65 ribbon-cutting event in late February or early March. The LaunchPad65 board meets this Friday to discuss next steps.
An EMERGE@Simpson CEO student team that is soft-launching an event planning business will be tasked with organizing the event. Simultaneously, a Management Capstone team will be working with LaunchPad65 stakeholders to launch the Maple Tree Marketplace in the Indianola business community. This includes developing a business plan for a local TV channel in conjunction with the Indianola Chamber of Commerce, who is also involved with LaunchPad65.
