FIRST FRIDAY: Karen + Arin of ephemera AT GRAVITATE

« Return to the Event List

On the first Friday of every month, join us to hear the savvy, successful business owners + entrepreneurs of Des Moines share their story. In a laid-back environment, you’ll catch some words of wisdom from women + men who have been through it before—and maybe walk away with a new connection (or two).

Sessions are completely free and open to the public, held from noon-1pm. This First Friday will be held at Gravitate, located at 206 6th Avenue, 3rd Floor. Seating is limited; first come, first served. No lunch provided (bring your own if you'd like!). A link to their website is here:

About Karen + Arin:

Karen Brady and Arin Hummel co-own ephemera, a stationery store nestled in the heart of Des Moines’ Historic East Village. Launched in 2007, the shop specializes in custom invitations, announcements and stationery designed and printed in-house. It also offers a selection of gifts and other paper goods. Karen and Arin met at the University of Iowa where they connected over a mutual appreciation for design, the power of a handwritten note, and a desire to be their own bosses. Both are Iowa natives.
