An accomplished Texas-based businesswoman, Stacy Stine Cary has a diverse professional background in the real estate and oil-and-gas industries. Currently, Stacy Cary works in support of several advocacy groups, and serves as a mentor with Tech Wildcatters, a micro-fund that invests money and other resources to help promising startups attain long-term success.
Tech Wildcatters recently completed the first of its “demo days” for its newest program, Emerge. Established through a partnership with the Department of Homeland Security and the Center for Innovative Technology, Emerge is the first accelerator program for startup companies that develop wearable technology solutions with applications for first-responders. Among the devices is a remote controlled ball that can be rolled into dangerous sites or situations to send back data warning first-responders of conditions they could encounter.
The inaugural class of five startups completed the 12-week program and received support from experienced mentors, who guided them on how to develop, improve, and market their products and services. Each company then had the opportunity to pitch their tech solutions during two demo days, held in Dallas and San Francisco.
Following the success of Emerge, Tech Wildcatters is looking forward to the new opportunities ahead in 2016. For more information about Tech Wildcatters and the startups they support, visit www.techwildcatters.com.
