While there are clear benefits to women-led companies and gender-balanced leadership teams, we have a long way to go in making this the norm.  Michelle will explore the “leaky pipeline” theory, how mentoring makes a difference for the woman AND the company, and how the disparate parties in the startup ecosystem can come together to make a major impact.

#BigDOCC - Dallas Open Coffee Club (Downtown Dallas)
You wake up every morning, filled with excitement about the technology news of the day. Wouldn't it be great if you could surround yourself once a week with people just as excited about tech as you are? Imagine a one hour chat, moderated of course, with people that love talking tech because they're passionate about it? Free coffee too? How this works: You bring yourself, and hopefully a friend. Your friendly moderator, Caitlin Studley, will start the conversation with introductions of any new attendees and then we'll tackle a few items such as community events (yes, you can promote yours!), jobs (who's searching/hiring), and then we get into it--what do you want to talk about this week?

Bring a friend and enhance the value for everyone.

Texas has long been the best place in the country to do business and over the past 10 years we have seen explosive entrepreneurial growth in the key cities across Texas, San Antonio, Houston, Austin, Dallas (also known as The Texas Triangle). Texas often ups up in the top 5 states for funding for startups in the country. However, what might happen if we combined forces with entrepreneurs, investors, and entrepreneurial support organizations from across the state and worked together to make each of the individual cities benefit from working together. Come hear from some of the leading entrepreneurial ecosystem builders from these 4 major communities across the state to talk bout the importance of collaboration, support, community, and how to raise money and build successful startups.
