Jasmin Brand

CEO/Publisher Launch DFW

“This is an exciting time to start a company here. In fact, Texas is number one for female entrepreneurs. It is the place to go if you want to start a business and grow. Big things are happening here. I’m a serial entrepreneur. My first business was when I was actually six. I had a lemonade stand. Then I was a Brownie and sold the most cookies. I’m passionate about entrepreneurship. I’ve started several companies, but I also love helping other people find their dream. So they can kind of remove the ceiling that comes when you have your own business. And you can take your vision and monetize it. That’s the most exciting thing.”

Sidharth Srinivasan

Trashbots CEO/Student

“Texas is just such a melting pot. There’s a lot of places you think about and you’ll immediately go to one culture or one type of person. And I think Texas has no one type of person...There’s just people from all over. And that really gives me a perspective of different cultures. I’m just more culturally aware.”

Cristobal Chavez

Jiu Jitsu Gym Owner

“However, someone ends up in Texas, they kind of, like, fall quickly in love with it... It's a state that's a little bit different than the rest of the U.S. We have more a sense of freedom to do whatever we like. To seek your passions and make it possible.”

Sadie Villareal, Audrey Wood, Casey Aicklen and Lacey Howard


“You get adventure in any type of way that you want adventure. If that’s going downtown to Austin and watching people get crazy, or if that’s going out to the middle of nowhere and not seeing anyone for miles and miles.”

Buck Johnston and Campbell Bosworth

Shopkeeper and Artist

“I’ve developed this strange thing called Texas pride. I fought it forever, being a native Okie. But I don’t know, there’s just something. The people, the space, the bigness of it. It’s like its own country.”
