Supporting Fort Worth’s Innovation Ecosystem

Wednesday, November 10, 2021 @ 3:00 pm 4:00 pm

 Fort Worth’s growing community of innovators is a reflection of the trailblazing spirit that makes our city so unique. This panel discussion will showcase the different ways that Fort Worth is currently supporting and encouraging innovation in the city, and where we’re headed in the near future — from start-up incubator TechFW to the UNT HSC’s newest initiative, a technology accelerator called Techstars.

Panelists include Robert Sturns (City of Fort Worth Director of Economic Development), Hayden Blackburn (Executive Director of TechFW), Cameron Cushman (HSC Assistant VP of Innovation Ecosystems) and Lesa Mitchell (Techstars General Manager). Dr. Robert McClain (HSC Associate VP of Research & Innovation) will moderate.
