We started off Dallas Startup Week with free breakfast & a great first session!
Trey Bowles, CEO from the DEC, kicked us off and gave a quick run down about Chase Basecamp and introduced the first panel: Top Success Stories of Dallas Entrepreneurs: The Good, Bad, and The Ugly by Entrepreneurs Who Have Built and Sold Companies in DFW.
The moderator and panel introduced themselves and shared fun facts - one bring a pilot and an extreme risk taker.
End goal is to sell your company and make an exit. A panelist had 3 exits, but he gets bored once he sells and enjoys the journey of growing instead.
Another panelist's email from an investor who wanted to buy the company went to the clutter. Tip: don't always ignore your junk mail!
At the end, moderator opened the floor to questions.
It was a great and informative first session!
We would like to thank Chase for Business for hosting Basecamp and sponsoring Dallas Startup Week 2017!
Looking forward to a great week!
