Young Founders Stories – Fort Worth
Founders Stories is a monthly series open to all entrepreneurs! From idea to exit or somewhere in the middle, we’ll talk with startup founders about what it takes to start a successful company.
Every month we’ll choose founders to give their story— which includes their successes, failures and even the grey areas along the way.
This month you’ll hear from two young founders around North Texas about their journey in tech!
