About Us

Venture Dallas is a 501c6 non-profit, volunteer led organization dedicated to growing the innovation ecosystem in Dallas-Fort Worth. This organization firmly believes that this is one of the best places in the world to grow companies and invest in them. We invite investors from across the United States to join us for a day-long summit to learn about local technology and venture successes, and opportunities in our region.

The 2020 host committee, comprised of representatives from Capital Factory, Cypress Growth Capital, Intelis Capital, JF2 Capital, Perot Jain, and Silicon Valley Bank is dedicated to leveraging their deep ties to the venture and tech community to make this a truly valuable event.

As a Strategic Partner, The Dallas Regional Chamber is supporting Venture Dallas by managing the event logistics and connecting with key members from the startup and corporate community.
