Dallas is known for Big Tex, frozen margaritas, and the Cowboys - and one of fastest growing startup scenes in America. The explosive growth of the tech industry is in large part thanks to the contributions of talented entrepreneurs from around the world. 1 out of every 4 businesses in the city are built by immigrants.
Join FWD.us & our partners during Immigrant Heritage Month 2016 to see the most innovative startup companies from Dallas' vibrant community of entrepreneurs. The evening will start with Dallas County Sheriff Lupe Valdez reading a proclamation from the City of Dallas recognizing June as Immigrant Heritage Month!
