Gabriella Draney

With her vision of seeing Texas recognized as one of the top 3 innovation ecosystems in the world, Gabriella Draney will present the many different players and catalysts necessary to make that vision a reality. Building the world's leading B2B accelerator was the first step in the process. Tech Wildcatters began spinning out new programs in 2012, beginning with the international exchange globeStart, in partnership with American Airlines. In 2013, Health Wildcatters became the first healthcare focused accelerator in the southwest and is currently running its second class. This fall marks the beginning of the latest spinout, the codex, which provides professional technology training.
