Ok so, she’s bringing a lot more than just a check you guys lol…This exciting news for North Texas founders!
Dallas has been selected as one of the featured host cities for the 2020 Backstage Capital Tour! This is a multi-city, 1-day event series bringing knowledge, investment, and connection to underrepresented founders and the ecosystems that help them grow.
Backstage was founded by venture capitalist & badass Arlan Hamilton and invests in startup founders who identify as a Woman, Person of Color, and/or LGBTQ.
On May 12th, Backstage will host a fireside chat with Arlan & afternoon session for founders and investors, followed by an evening event where six local startups will compete for a minimum $25,000 investment from Backstage. Every attendee will also receive a copy of Arlan’s new book, It’s About Damn Time!
I have been selected as the official city lead for Dallas and unbelievably honored to be a part of this major national initiative for Texas founders.
We’re also working on something EPIC for black female founders here in North Texas. Stay tuned as more info will be revealed in the next couple of weeks.
