It is truly exciting to see how the accelerator community is growing in DFW. Tech Wildcatters has done an amazing job pioneering the accelerator community and with the recent announcement of their addition with Health Wildcatters, this is a wonderful expansion into a new and needed industry.

They are now accepting applications – deadline for applications is May 17th.  The program start date in Dallas is July 29th (so hurry up and get your application in now). The program invests up to $30K into each company plus an additional $100,000 at the end of the program based on the company’s success (office space, other services and mentorship are included for free).
