“Growing up in Central Iowa, I’ve witnessed the growth and transformation of #DSMUSA and am all in with trying to help it be greater. We’re all better when we’re in it together with a diverse set of voices and experiences. As a small business owner, you have to talk about and promote yourself a lot, so being a Hummingbird is a great opportunity to get out of my own head and use my platform to elevate others.”

“Des Moines helped me find my true “me” and I want others to discover more about themselves through the best our amazing community has to offer!”

“I have enjoyed working with Brand Launch from the start! As director of marketing for the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden, I want to buck the traditional idea of what a public garden is and who it’s for. I want to help position the Garden as a community resource that is relevant to and welcoming of a broad audience, and the Hummingbirds have helped show our community that the Garden truly has something for everyone.”

“Brand Launch created an amazing opportunity for my spa business to reach new clients. Working with Emily, Whitney and all the Hummingbirds was not only easy, seamless but an absolute joy! Everyone top to bottom was engaged in my business and committed to spreading awareness and excitement about our amazing treatments. The numbers don’t lie and Brand Launch not only delivered on the number of new clients we thought they could bring in, it almost doubled them. If you’re thinking about working with them and the Hummingbirds, do it!”

“Des Moines is the greatest place. The people are the best. Honestly it was a cool way to do some of what I was already doing for things and places that I had great experiences at, but instead of doing it myself I got to team with other like-minded people and it made it way better. Also, anything that Whitney and Emily touch turns to gold, so if they want to do something I’ll automatically sign up.”

“I love connecting people to what gives them joy. Whether it is a collaboration that they can be a part of, and event or hidden spot they’ve yet to try, or an organization or person that could shift the path of their life moving forward. Des Moines has so much to offer, you just have to know the right places to look. I love uncovering new people, places, and viewpoints of Des Moines.”

“We had a great experience working with Brand Launch for the release of my book. The Hummingbirds were engaged early readers of the book and showed up to our launch event with so much enthusiasm and energy. Their reactions made great early reviews to post as well. Thank you Brand Launch and your wonderful Hummingbirds!”
