Austin, Meet Dallas

Austin Startup

I arrived in Dallas a little more than six months ago, April 1, to begin my new role at the University of Texas at Dallas. At UT Dallas, as we call it for short, I’m a clinical associate professor in the Jindal School of Management , where I teach entrepreneurship. While I’ve day-commuted to Dallas to do business for more than 30 years, I’ve never lived here. In the early days of the current internet age, the center of Dallas venture capital was the Galleria area.

Parkland and Growing Up In Dallas

Feld Thoughts

I grew up in Dallas – I lived there from 1968 to 1983 when I moved to Boston to go to college. So Dallas looms large over my own personal development. But once I was old enough to hear about Nixon and Vietnam, I started hearing about how the most loved president ever was murdered in Dallas. I rarely spent any time in downtown Dallas as a kid and never really knew my way around until I started running the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving as a teenager.
