Meet Dallas Innovates’ 2015-16 Advisers

Dallas Innovates Advisers
by May 23

To help us tell the story of the innovation scene in North Texas, we invited influential movers and shakers in our content pillars of creative, education, enterprise, invention, social, and startup to be advisers. Our founding advisers come from a vast array of backgrounds and bring insight of their expertise to our organization. Each person was hand-selected to be a part of Dallas Innovates. Some will be writing for the site; while others will be called on for interviews. All have been tasked with alerting us to stories in innovation.

We invite you to meet our 2015-16 advisers.
