Mark Cuban, Dallas’ Favorite Tech Billionaire Has Words For You

Mark Cuban, everyone’s favorite Dallas based tech billionaire, host of ABC’s hit show “Shark Tank,” and owner of the Dallas Mavericks has some words of wisdom for you, dear entrepreneur.

When you’re serious you’ll know. Everyone will know, says Cuban: “You know without any doubt in your mind, you know your industry better than anybody. You’re not really taking a risk. You’ll know when the time is, and you’ll go.”

Cuban has increased his presence in the Dallas-Fort Worth tech community, an indicator that our market is maturing. Last year he judged Dallas’ first HackDFW event, and Friday he will act as a judge for the UT Dallas Business Idea Competition.

Earlier in the year, Cuban said “North Texas, for 1,000 reasons, is easily one of the best places for entrepreneurs to get started.” He continued: “My businesses require brainpower and effort, and there’s no shortage of that here.”

Investments in the region include Frisco based iLumi, Dallas based xpire, Villy Custom, and Foot Cardigan.
