#DSW16 What They Said

“I am a part of this community because our company, while still being in the startup phase itself, works primarily with new businesses to help determine and solidify their brand. I’m looking forward to familiarizing myself with downtown Dallas. I have only lived in the downtown area for two weeks, and what better way to integrate myself into the community, than to explore different venues and sessions during Dallas Startup Week.” – Robin Ball, founder, RLHBall

“I constantly seek to improve not only my product but myself as an entrepreneur, and there’s no better place than a startup community to achieve both. A booming economy and central geographical location will soon catapult Dallas into the national startup spotlight.” – David Calvert, founder and CEO, BackVert

“In early 2013, the startup scene in Dallas was still a distant dream. Over the past three years I’ve watched investment flow in for seed stage companies, entrepreneurs take risks, and a community rally around the potential for an unbelievably supportive ecosystem. All three of these things are critical to our success and unity in Dallas. The number of motivated individuals participating in Dallas Startup proves how far this city has come in a short time.” – Shaun Moore, co-founder and CEO, Chui

Favorite quotes from @: “UX Experience is critical” and “Services are quickly becoming a commodity.”

: “Especially in Dallas … you’re one or two degree connected to all of us who are investing. Use that.”
: “Your lawyer, banker, accountant should all be making intros. If not you probably don’t have the right one.”

“We’ve learned because we lost everything.” Jody Wall of @ at @ @

“Have a specific ask” – @
