Top Tweets from DSW19
You know we think Dallas is the best place on earth for entrepreneurs and investors alike. That’s why we participate in Dallas Startup Week. Not only does it showcase some of the big hitters in the industry, it also allows new entrepreneurs to receive a fast track education. This year we led the Capital and Funding Track alongside Silicon Valley Bank and had a blast live tweeting through the entire thing. That’s why we wanted to recap some of our favorite tweets and people you should follow! Check them out 🡪
