Programming Note

This 208th issue of the Texas-Squared Startup Newsletter marks four full years of regular weekly publication. Texas-Squared and its monthly sister publication, the Texas-Boxed CPG Newsletter strive to comprehensively cover ALL of the startup news in Texas. As a reminder, the newsletter is meant to be skimmed while drinking your Sunday coffee in order for you to get a snapshot of what’s important to the startup communities across the Texas region for the week. It’s also a resource to discover relevant upcoming events in each major city. I try very hard to capture everything each week, but I always welcome tips:
Even after four years, it’s still a one-person operation (5 Rules for Starting an Email Newsletter), but I couldn’t do it without the generous support of my employer, the startup law firm of Egan Nelson and the guidance of my colleague, José Ancer who writes the Silicon Hills Lawyer blog. I would also like to acknowledge my past advertisers who allow me to help get their message out to the top startup founders, investors, and business influencers in the Lone Star State. Finally, and most importantly, my family needs recognition because they are the ones who put up with me working on it for hours each weekend.
Thank you for your continued readership and the best way you can help keep it going is to share   with your startup and investor friends.
