What are your goals as you help entrepreneurs and their companies?
Teaching, inspiring, making sure that they stay motivated, trying to make sure they don’t make the same mistakes I might have learned from the school of hard knocks. It’s making sure they’re on the right path and helping them to the next steps in the process. It’s being a trusted adviser.
Could North Texas be the birthplace of the next big tech innovation?
I hope so. I think there are some exciting things coming out of our universities. We’ve attracted companies that are doing very innovative things. I think we’ve been challenged in that we’re not as big a venture capital area as New York or Silicon Valley. We need to make sure (startups) have the money to move forward.
