Women take the lead in building Houston’s tech ecosystem - Link

- The Houston Chronicle's Andrea Lienfelder


“Dianna Liu brought her pipe-crawling robot to Houston for the city’s energy cluster. Kim Roxie attended startup programs in Austin and California before returning to her hometown to transform her vegan makeup line for women of color into an ecommerce site with a greater potential to grow.

And Allison Lami Sawyer helped raise $14 million for a company that uses machine learning and cameras to detect oil rig and refinery explosions before they occur. Now a venture capitalist, she’s hoping to be an early backer of other machine learning deals as Houston works to refine its technology image.”

Austin’s Spiceworks is Bought by Ziff Davis - Link

- Silicon Hills News’ Laura Lorek


"Thirteen years ago, four tech workers in Austin founded Spiceworks, a social network for IT professionals.

That company grew to employ 450 people and it also raised $11 million in venture capital funding including $57 million from Goldman Sachs in 2014.

This week, Jay Hallberg, one of the co-founders and its CEO, announced in a blog post, that Spiceworks entered into an agreement to be acquired by Ziff Davis B2B, a division of J2 Global. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.”
