Super-Index of Iowa Startups participating in the Dream Big, Grow Here competition

Note: The Startup Iowa Facebook group has been full of posts from founders promoting their entries in the Dream Big, Grow Here competition. I asked the group if someone would be willing to tabulate all the startups participating (a subset of all the businesses) and Jenny Richmond of Bevometer answered the call. She cross referenced all the entries in the competition with members of the Facebook group and here are the results Thanks Jenny!
