Tres Mentes Salsa and More Featured on Entrepreneur Network

The makers of Ambitious Adventures, an online television show on the Entrepreneur Network, visited Greater Des Moines (DSM) to see why it has some of the best entrepreneurs in the country.

The show, which first aired on Nov. 13, 2017 sought to find out what makes certain business ideas a success and came to DSM to find out.

DSM-based Tres Mentes Salsa illustrated how the Downtown Farmers’ Market acted as an incubator and validated their idea.

 “[At the Downtown Farmers’ Market] you really learn to sharpen your sales skills,” Angelo Campos told presenters Greg Rollett and DSM-native Brandon T. Adams. “Obviously, sell your product, get good at it. Because once you build it here, you want to take it to the stores and that’s where your skills transcend.”

Tres Mentes Salsa products can be found in stores across the Midwest.

KinoSol and the Slingshot ride at the Iowa State Fair are also featured in the episode.
