Dallas Startup Schedule for Wednesday, April 13

StartupWeek-Wednesday

Dallas Startup Week 2016 runs Tuesday through April 16, and we couldn’t be more excited! In fact, we got so excited about all the events on the schedule that we decided to put together our own planning calendar, which we thought you might like, too.

Here are the events planned for Wednesday, April 13. We’ve added a registration link to all the events listed. Be sure to double check dates, times, and venues in case there are changes.

We also found a great color-coded calendar by time track for Wednesday’s events by Mindy Maniord. The calendar is available at Dallas Startup Week Basecamp, or you can download the PDF here.
