We are an exclusive group developers that are trying to change the world by building companies who's major value proposition is software. Not to be confused with people trying to build software development shops that build software for other companies, this group is dedicated to building software products and software related services.
We are seriously technical founders of companies that get motivated and demotivated, inspired and discouraged, are always learning and doing incredibly dumb things while building our companies. We get together to help each other overcome the wasteland environment of technical entrepreneurial ability in Dallas. If you and/or someone you know is trying to build a company but is stuck in their home office or basement and not making much progress on their software app, send them here and we will try to help them the best we can.
We are highly structured group with a good sense of humor. The structure and commitment helps us maximize the value we get out of it.
We have 2 types of sessions:
#1 Tech Founders - Breakthrough
These sessions meet Monday and Wednesday from 7am to 8:30am every week. New members should be prepared to commit for at least 6 weeks in a row. New members who miss more than 3 consecutive sessions will be asked to not attend for at least 6 weeks. New members should be prepared to present a short presentation of what their software does and why it is so valuable so the rest of the group can understand the context and provide the best advice and feedback.
#2 Tech Founders - Lite
This group meets about once per month. Time and day of week varies.
For both types of session the day is broken into 2 parts. Part 1 is a person presenting a problem or/their company and then the group tries to help them solve that problem. Part 2 is someone in the group introducing a technology/practice/principle they feel is extremely valuable to the success of building a software company. Each section is 35 minutes long so there's some wiggle room for conversations / random stuff going wrong.
Who this is not for: - Recruiters - People with an idea for an app but little to no technical accumen - People who cannot keep commitments for at least 6 weeks - People who don't know how to build software - People who are technically competent but only want to build an app and not a company - People that are unwilling to wake up at 6am to get here at 7am
If you're excited about getting together with technical founders of of other companies in Dallas, please fill out this short form and apply to join the group. We will try to get back to you with a decision as soon as possible. https://goo.gl/forms/jj8jjZCwtzCZJ21M2
