The Business Case for Mentoring Women
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.

Hospitality Keynote: Building Wealth While Investing in Your Neighborhood From the Founder of the Belmont Hotel, Texas Theater, and Tyler Station
Join us for a unique hospitality and development discussion with keynote speaker, Monte Anderson, who will tell the story of how neighborhoods are improved and individual wealth is created when locals invest in their own buildings. He will highlight his experience with Dallas' Belmont Hotel, the historic Texas Theatre, and most recently a transit oriented development, Tyler Station, making a case for locals taking the future of their neighborhoods into their own hands and out of the hands of outside investors and developers. "The hope is that an entrepreneur will come along and own a building with three rental spaces," says Monte. "That business owner builds net worth, and becomes a major stakeholder in downtown, which changes self-esteem and everything about that entrepreneur's life. They've got a piece of the action, they're not renting from 'the man'." Monte, a native of southern Dallas, has spent his entire career working in his own backyard, advocating for and mentoring small business owners through a successful real estate career, all while playing with grandkids, his cats, and listening to rap music.
