Danny Bush, founder of "Fun on the Run Plus One," an innovative application designed to connect individuals through shared activities or hobbies, sought the support of the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce (FWC) to navigate the challenges of technological development and secure potential investment for her project. Aimed at those with hectic lifestyles, her application promises to eliminate common barriers to building relationships, enabling spontaneous and memorable connections among users.

Understanding the critical nature of Danny’s needs, Netty Matthews, Senior Vice President – Business Advocacy at FWC, facilitated a connection between Bush and Hayden Blackburn at TechFW, a move that underscores the Chamber's commitment to solving problems and aligning resources within the business community. TechFW's engagement with Bush was thorough, focusing on understanding the technical and developmental aspects of her app, including UX/UI design, front end and back end development, and the desired tech stack. This collaborative effort aimed to curate a tailored list of resources and potential developers to help bring "Fun on the Run Plus One" to life.

“TechFW, an entrepreneurial support organization at the heart of the Fort Worth tech scene, offers a dynamic suite of services to drive technological innovation and empower founders,” said Hayden Blackburn, Executive Director at TechFW. “From the ThinkLab Startup Accelerator, a 12-week course which serves as a launchpad for tech startups, to the SmartStart Startup Incubator, guiding ideas to market-ready solutions, the MCrew Mentor Program ensures founders have access to a seasoned cohort of mentors, and the Cowtown Angels, connecting startups with vital capital investments, TechFW is a comprehensive ecosystem. TechFW isn't just an organization; it's the catalyst for transformative growth and technological advancement, shaping the future of entrepreneurship in the city.”

This situation illustrates the proactive role of the FWC in supporting entrepreneurs like Bush, demonstrating its ability to bridge gaps between visionaries and the resources they need.
