“I can’t believe how many people are here,” exclaimed a newcomer to the Dallas startup community during Tuesday’s Dallas New Tech.
The monthly event gives founders the opportunity to pitch their companies to a crowd of tech, startup, and entrepreneur-minded people from across North Texas.
Five startups put their products and plans on display at the March event then fielded questions from a supportive, yet critical audience. Some pitchers were new to the scene, but a few have been long-time members of the Dallas startup community, including Andrew Zusman, Vice President of Product for Skyrise.
“Skyrise is the result of thousands of hours of hustling,” Zusman says “It is something I am proud of and telling my peers about the fruits of our labor is a source of morale.”
Dallas New Tech let them share what they’ve been working on, and hopefully find community members that can open doors to new opportunities.
“Startups need transparency in order to grow and part of that openness is grabbing a mic and telling audiences why you are passionate about your work.”
