Dallas Startup Week Schedule for Tuesday, April 12

StartupWeek-Tuesday

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 Tuesday. 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 Tuesday’s events by Mindy Maniord. The calendar is available at Dallas Startup Week Basecamp, or you can download the PDF here.

Be sure to sign up for our newsletter, which will be glowing in orange all week to show our support, and you’ll get coverage delivered straight to your inbox.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could surround yourself once a week with people just as excited about tech as you are? Imagine a one hour chat — moderated of course — with people that love talking tech because they’re passionate about it? Breakfast burritos and free coffee too? That’s exactly why #BigDOCC was founded. To give people like us a place to open up and be the people we love to be. #DSW16 registration

Gaming: Marketing Through Games

As social media, digital marketers have a new set of tools. The demographic appeal of online and mobile games has broadened, the cost of games creation has fallen, and success has been proven in meeting any marketing objectives from raising basic awareness to teaching new behaviors to driving brand loyalty. Simple online and mobile games give marketers a way to engage consumers through owned gaming media, while large-scale online games like Farmville allow integration into successful existing platforms.  #DSW16 registration

(Hint: It’s All About the Credit)

Every startup CEO has assumptions about funding. And while there’s not a right or wrong way, there is a best and better way when it comes to lending. Putting payroll on your personal credit card? Wondering why you got rejected for a loan? Yearning to learn how to get your business credit (that’s separate from your personal line)? Hear thoughts from our industry expert panel on these subjects, then break into small groups for a credit matchmaking “speed date” to understand and learn actionable steps of how to use credit to capitalize on emerging opportunities or deal with unexpected surprises in your business.  #DSW16 registration
