Des Moines, Iowa – RadioIowa – The State of Iowa is partnering with Google on an effort to help small businesses in the state grow their online presence and reach more consumers. Secretary of State Paul Pate talked about the initiative Thursday during a news conference at the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines.
Whitney Cox, with Small Business Outreach at Google, says the program is called Let’s Put Our Cities on the Map.
Lisa Shimkat with Iowa’s Small Business Development Center, is encouraging all Iowa business owners to take advantage of the online resource.
Pate noted that new business filings in Iowa are at an all-time high.
Business owners can visit the Secretary of State’s booth in the Varied Industries Building throughout the Iowa State Fair to get signed up for the program — or they can do so online at sos.iowa.gov.
