I attended the Dallas Startup Happy Hour (sponsored by SpringStage) last night. This was the second time I attended but this one was especially great because I got to bring along one of my clients who is working full-time on his startup. He got a much-needed break from coding and was able to network and just otherwise talk shop with other startup entrepreneurs. Thus, if you are a current startup in the DFW area or maybe just thinking about it, consider attending a future Dallas Startup Happy Hour. It’s being held every other week at the High Tech Bar at the INFOMART Center in Dallas.
Here is the motivation for the event:
We are working to build a vibrant startup community here in Dallas every bit as interesting and dynamic as San Francisco, Boulder, Boston or Austin. The first step is engagement. If you are an entrepreneur (future, current or past) you should attend. If you are working for a startup you should attend.
I’ve had the pleasure of meeting many great people, including (but not limited to):
-Jason Hudgins of Droidworks
-Andy Chen and Andres Fabris of Traxo
-Brad Brawner of SportsJungle
-Bradley Joyce, web developer & entrepreneur
-Lincoln Murphy of Morph Labs (who helped me with the correct pronunciation of “mysql” and explained what “the cloud” is.)
-Scot Duke of Innovate Business Golf Solutions
