We’re always excited to talk about what LAUNCH DFW is up to and how much we love being a part of the startup community here in North Texas.
Today, LAUNCH DFW founder, Bradley Joyce, had the opportunity to speak as a guest on Yorba Media’s “Traders Network,” along with Michael Gilbert of The Garage.
“Bradley has been the voice of the tech startup community,” says Gilbert, Chief Mechanic at The Garage.
For those of you who don’t know the whole story, Bradley Joyce started LAUNCH DFW in 2010.
He saw a need for connecting all of the startups and entrepreneurs in the area. Because the DFW area is so spread out, it can be “hard to make connections, hard to meet people.” So he started the website as a blog, a place for people “to come together, keeping the pulse of what’s going on.”
And now, LAUNCH DFW has grown into new media organization – promoting entrepreneurship in North Texas and acting as the hub for all conversations, movements, and events around the startup community.
And here’s a FUN FACT: Bradley Joyce isn’t even from Dallas!
Bradley hails from the Northwest, and as Michael Gilbert points out, “it took someone [that isn’t] from North Texas to do what he’s done…he’s really brought the community together through LAUNCH DFW. He’s not just about one company, accelerator, or coworking space…he covers them all.”
You can listen to the entire show here.
Thanks so much to Michael Yorba and Yorba Media for hosting LAUNCH DFW, and to Michael Gilbert for bringing us on. We’re looking forward to talking more about all the awesome business in our metroplex!
