Trailblazer Capital Event Aims to Draw New Restaurant, Retail, Hospitality
and Entertainment Start-Up Businesses to Dallas
RICHARDSON, TEXAS – March 31, 2014 – EnTouch Controls, a leading provider of cloud-based energy management systems (EMS), today announced that its CEO, Greg Fasullo, will speak as part of the Trailblazer Capital 2nd annual “Tech Trends in Restaurant & Retail” event happening at the Magnolia Hotel in downtown Dallas on Thursday, April 3 from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Trailblazer Capital, a Dallas-based venture capital firm, has committed to attracting entrepreneurs looking to start new technology companies for restaurant, retail, hospitality and entertainment businesses to Dallas and has planned this event to stimulate that effort.
“We pride ourselves on finding disruptive technology companies and how great would it be to have our hometown as a center for that kind of thinking,” said David Matthews of Trailblazer Capital. “We’re excited to share the expertise of some of the companies we’re working with at the event and hope it will highlight that Dallas is the home for many exciting new technology companies serving the restaurant and retail industry.”
Energy waste is a multi-billion dollar problem facing the nation’s retail and restaurant chains, impacting customers and revenues and reducing profitability. In his presentation, Fasullo will share his thoughts on the significant energy waste in restaurants and retail stores, largely due to poorly functioning HVAC systems and how an energy management solution can dramatically reduce this waste and cost.
“EnTouch is headquartered in Dallas and I’ve spent a significant portion of my career in the area, so helping to build up the community is a natural decision for me,” said Fasullo. “Trailblazer Capital has been important in helping our company flourish and we’re excited to be a part of an event that will help to do the same for our community as a whole.”
Each presenting company will have 13 minutes to present. In addition to EnTouch Controls, other presenting companies will include Compare Metrics, cycleWood Solutions, Donde, Group Raise, Koupon Media, Manager Complete, Mahana, Oculus360, Patron Path Theatro, Service Channel and VentureSpur. Philip Romano, an investor, entrepreneur, artist and nationally renowned restaurateur with over forty years of experience, will deliver the keynote presentation.
