Startup Ames’ is excited to announce a First Shot event on Thursday, July 20 from 7:30-9:00AM! 

This time we will hear from two different businesses on what they’re working on over the summer in the CYstarters accelerator program:  Brandi Barrett (Fast Farm) and Dillon Hurd (Hurd Health Group).

Fast Farm utilizes a mobile platform which allows farmers to specify their equipment needs in less than one minute. The Fast Farm system reaches out to subscribing dealers, finding those dealers in possession of the specific equipment. Dealers ready to make the sale are then able to contact farmers ready to purchase through the messaging services built into the Fast Farm application. Brandi is a senior graduating in agricultural business.

Hurd Health Group is a bio-medical engineering company developing novel solutions to the most challenging problems with current cardiac devices. The Heart of Tomorrow is the company’s first research and development project, focused on the development of a wireless, pulsing ventricular assist device. Dillon is a bio-medical engineer, Ph.D. student in chemical & biological engineering.

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)
