Des Moines Business Owner DeWaay To Meet with UI Entrepreneurial Students

Des Moines financial manager Don DeWaay will discuss his career running his own management firm when he speaks to students in the John Pappajohn Entrepreneurial Center at 11 a.m. Friday, Sept. 12 at the Bedell Entrepreneurship Learning Laboratory, 322 N. Clinton St.

DeWaay founded DeWaay Capital Management in Des Moines in 1987. He became best known for emphasizing private investments outside of public markets in the 1990s, so his clients largely missed the later tech stock meltdown.

Today, his firm has more than 65 employees and 1,500 clients. For more information or to register visit
