Dallas New Tech, August 2016, with Tech.Co!

Good afternoon Launch DFW readers – tonight we have a very special Dallas New Tech. It’s presented in cooperation with Tech.Co, Silicon Valley Bank, and The DEC.

Tonight’s format is a modified New Tech. The teams will still have 5 minutes to present, and 5 minutes for Q&A, but this time we’re introducing a panel of judges. We’ll have Fiona Schlachter from Health Wildcatters, David Matthews from REVTECH, Jason Story of Hangar Ventures, and Trey Bowles from The DEC.

The two best teams (as chosen by the judges) will be flown to Silicon Valley to compete in Celebrate 2016!
