Texas TECH Talk is produced by TECH Fort Worth to showcase emerging technology entrepreneurs and to promote the growth and development of technology start-ups in Texas.

Twice a week, we talk about technology start-ups, focusing on their challenges and successes. We offer guests the opportunity to share their insights, resources they found useful, and ideologies that helped them move forward.

Additionally, we offer listeners information on resources in the state that can give technology start-ups the mentoring, coaching, and support they need to grow and thrive.

Whether we are talking about funding, corporate structure, IP, or R&D, Texas TECH Talk is focused on one thing: YOU, the Technology Entrepreneur. Let us know what you want to hear on this show!
