Techweek is thrilled to announce its Techweek100 Dallas 2016, honoring 100 pioneers and trailblazers in the Dallas-Fort Worth tech community.
The final selection was made following months of sifting and vetting hundreds of nominations. Brought to you by BKD, Techweek100 Dallas 2016 is awarded in three categories — Ambassadors, Innovators, and Cultivators — that play a critical part in maintaining Dallas’ position as an innovation center.
