Growing Up in Coralville & Starting a Business

August 10 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM CDT

City of Coralville Celebrating 150 years 1873-2023
We’re going back to the future to hear how 80’s/90’s Coralville influenced some of Coralville’s business leaders today! Hear from a panel of residents who grew up together, and later all opened businesses in Coralville. Panelists will tell stories of their youth, why they chose to remain in Coralville, and share their business success stories.

Panelists include Ben Kinseth, Matt Swift, and Sean Pearl; Nate Kaeding who will serve as panelist and moderator of the group.

Moderated by Nate Kaeding (former West High, Hawkeye, and San Diego Chargers kicker), who will be joined by lifetime Coralville friends Ben Kinseth (Director of Operations, Kinseth Hospitality Companies), Sean Pearl (owner & CEO Sustainable Landscape Solutions), and Matt Swift (restaurant entrepreneur, Big Grove, 30Hop, Tribute Eatery & Bar, Iowa Athletic Club, and many more).

The panelists’ discussion will entertain and inspire while revealing why they chose to locate their successful businesses in Coralville. You’ll hear great stories about people around Coralville as they reminisce about family life, elementary school through graduating class of 2000, sports teams, and early jobs.

This event will be held in the lower level of the Coralville Public Library.
