  • The cost of business in Greater Des Moines is 18% lower than the national average, and MoneyGeek named Des Moines the #4 "Best Mid-Sized City to Make A Living" in 2016. These are just a few of the factors that explain why Des Moines businesses produce some innovative and amazing products! Our new program, Made In DSM, highlights some of the businesses right here on the East, South, and North sides of our city that produce products that impact lives worldwide, and help make us proud to work and live in Des Moines.
