About the Speaker

Mike Draper is the founder and owner of RAYGUN. He was born only a few blocks from the company headquarters at Lutheran Hospital in 1982, so, geographically, he has not come very far in life. His goal is to become so rich that he only associates with people who ride in private helicopters.


All attendees will be eligible to win the ultimate prize pack giveaway, valued at more than $125 of RAYGUN swag. The prize pack includes items like a "Shopping at Hy-Vee" tote bag, an "Iowa Captive" koozie, an "Iowa: 75% Vowels, 100% Awesome" pint glass, and much more. Must be present to win.
