From Shark Tank to Techweek Dallas, Foot Cardigan’s Star Continues to Rise

The quirky idea for Bryan DeLuca’s novelty sock subscription business Foot Cardigan came about because he forgot to pack enough socks for a 3-month European trip with his wife. Four years and a memorable appearance on Shark Tank later, the company is nearing the close of its first capital round after a year where it saw $2.5M in sales. Entrepreneurs like Bryan with amazing success stories are ones that Techweek loves to spotlight, which is why we are thrilled to have Bryan join us at the Techweek Dallas Summit 2016.

Techweek recognizes that Dallas is more than just Cowboys football and BBQ. Dallas has a rich history of business formation and a vibrant tech ecosystem that should be appreciated. With the goal of helping to facilitate conversations and cultivate relationships in the tech space, Techweek knows that Dallas was not a city to pass up. Techweek Dallas (Oct. 31 to Nov. 4) will not only feature thought-provoking panels and an exciting startup competition, but will also provide three nights of concerts with headlining acts Matt & Kim and Purity Ring. Be sure to grab your Summit tickets to hear Bryan share about his startup journey on the Techweek Dallas stage on November 3.

Bryan is the Co-Founder, CEO, and Beard Grower of Foot Cardigan, which launched in 2012. He is a proud alumnus of Nashville’s Belmont University where he majored in Music Business. A fan of whiskey cocktails, Bryan frequents the Bishop Arts District of Dallas.
