Look Inside: 2019 Dallas Innovates Magazine Reception

The region's most innovative minds join Dallas Innovates to celebrate North Texas' 'Breakout Moment.'

The Dallas Innovates editorial team and more than 250 top innovators in North Texas gathered last week at WeWork in Uptown to celebrate the launch of Dallas Innovates 2019 — The Magazine.

The Dallas-Fort Worth innovation community was well represented. Ecosystem icons,  founders, rising stars, rebels, renegades, and visionaries all came together to revel in North Texas’ Breakout Moment. 

“It’s a moment that belongs to you,” said Quincy Preston, publisher, Dallas Innovates. “All of you are creating it.”

The magazine tells the story of our region as a hub of innovation and shines a spotlight on the people and companies starting, funding, and breaking through every day, Preston said. The publication features innovators having a breakout moment in fields from biotech to blockchain and IoT to AI — all forging the future, right here in DFW.

We’d like to thank everyone who attended and made the magazine reception a success.
