If Netflix isn’t getting it done for your entertainment needs, you might want to consider the third season of IPTV’s “Iowa Entrepreneur,” which begins Dec. 1 at 6:30 p.m. with 10 episodes.
The 30-minute program tells the stories of Iowans taking off in their small businesses, including: Tres Mentes Salsa (Grimes), BeraTek Industries (Cedar Rapids), CrawDaddy Outdoors (Iowa City), RCS Millwork (Ankeny), Fire Farm (Waverly), Visual Logic (Waterloo), RMA Armament (Centerville), Mississippi River Distilling Co. (Le Claire), Fresh Wheatgrass Girl (Carlisle), Interpower (Oskaloosa), Fareway (Boone), Innovative Lighting (Roland), Plastics Unlimited (Preston), AgriSync (Waukee), True Potential Education (West Des Moines), Shirk Photography (Wilton), FarmHer (Urbandale), Rodney’s Kitchen (Waterloo), Gomaco (Ida Grove) and Pear Deck (Iowa City).
“We’re opening up eyes to what it truly takes to be considered an entrepreneur. These folks are much more than just business owners,” said Brad Wells, executive producer for Around the Corner, the company producing the show.
Fun fact: Iowa has more than 260,000 small businesses.
If you have Friday night plans, the shows repeat at 10:30 a.m. Sundays on statewide IPTV channels. Learn more at iptv.org/IowaEntrepreneur.
