In 2008 Alexander Muse, Co-Founder of ShopSavvy, decided to start hosting a regular startup-focused happy hour for the North Texas area. More 5,000 local entrepreneurs have joined us for beer and fellowship. The newspaper wrote about the event and lots of new companies have been formed from the relationships created at the event – for example Alexander met Rylan Barnes and joined together to start ShopSavvy. It has been a very fun couple of years and the event has grown hugely.
The Dallas Startup Happy Hour, Presented by LaunchDFW.
We rotate around venues in Dallas. Send me a message if you want to host 100-200 startup entrepreneurs.
Check the calendar for the date of each monthly event.
The event begins at 5:30PM with cocktails and sometimes light hors d’oeuvres, then at 6PM we will have a speaker/program for 15-30 minutes and then have more cocktails and networking until around 8PM. Each quarter we hope to attract a ’significant’ speaker.
Sponsor the Event
It doesn't cost much to run the event around $1,500 per month or $18,000 per year. We plan to raise the money by offering year long sponsorships at three levels: Angel Sponsors:$500 (up-to-20 sponsors at this level), Series A Sponsor: $1,000 (up-to-3 sponsors at this level), IPO Sponsor: $5,000 (only 1 sponsor at this level).
