We are excited to announce the next First Shot event on Thursday, September 21 from 7:30AM-9AM with Tyler DeVos & Michael Hanstad of DeadEye BBQ!

DeadEye BBQ creates their own barbecue sauces and spice blends.  Founded in 2014 after discovering an old barbecue sauce recipe note card from a friend’s relative, Tyler DeVos and Michael Hanstad knew they had something special.  While at Iowa State, the two teamed up to make the first 1000 batches of the original sauce recipe.  Today, DeadEye BBQ is in over 65 Fareway stores and 22 Hy-Vees.  Tyler is a graduate from Iowa State, while Michael is finishing his senior year at Iowa State in Marketing.

We will kick-off at 8AM, but come earlier to hangout (drink coffee), network, and share stories.

Where: Rippke’s Creative Commons (coworking space)

When: 7:30AM-9AM (we won’t kick you out after 9)

Be sure to come and bring a friend and join the Startup Ames’ community!
