Gravitate is going all in to help families this holiday, and we need your help. Our member Derek Brooks and his wife Kari, have connected us with three local families to learn what could make their holidays extra special. We've setup a Christmas tree at each Gravitate location where you can drop off (or order) presents to be given to the families detailed below
After a lot of hard work from our team and countless trips up and down 6th Avenue, I'm excited to share that Gravitate Downtown v1.5 is officially open for business at our new location: 317 6th Avenue, Suite 102. We're on the first floor of the building and the best way to access us from the outside world is on Locust St. If you're coming via the skywalk system, we're accessible from the lobby of what has historically been called the "Bank of America Building".
Late last week our home for the past 2.5 years, the Midland Building, was sold to a developer that has exciting plans for the place. Those plans require a massive renovation of the 100+ year old structure and that’s an opportunity for us to evolve Gravitate into something stronger—in a new location.
As promised last week, here are the details on our big Two Year Birthday Celebration coming up on September 2!
As with all good things, this chapter spent at Gravitate has come to an end for Bunchball. Despite the awesome amenities, people, and space at Gravitate, our future plans here in Des Moines require us to find a new, larger space. We’ve moved to the East Village, and we now call Market One home, just south of the Iowa Tap Room. We really trust that moving this close to 140+ tap handles of beer will be judged by history as a “good move.”
Politico Magazine published a lengthy story this week entitled: How America’s Dullest City Got Cool—One meeting, a visionary planner and old-fashioned Iowan cooperation reinvented Des Moines, Included in the story is a section on Gravitate and its role in our startup community.
