Cohort Program

Cohort Program

As part of our continuing effort to engage start-ups and non-traditional businesses, we launched a cohort program in 2019. The cohort program offers unique programming, leadership connections, and expanded network engagement to first-time Chamber investors – all at a discounted fee.  Cohort content will include invitation–only meetings with leading civic and/or business stakeholders (i.e. Chamber/City leaders and influencers).

Aspen Tyke

A Smart, Versatile, All-In-One Diaper Bag engineered to make on-the-go with baby more fun and less stress for Mom and Dad. Life is hard enough as it is, but once you have a baby, you need nothing short of Herculean strength and planning to get through life. Luckily, with the Tyke Traveler at your side, you can hack each day like a boss and learn to enjoy even the craziest of outings. Tyke Traveler converts from a diaper bag backpack to a diaper bag tote for easy traveling and range of movement. No longer do you have to worry about lugging eight different carryalls, since our all-in-one system gives you a place for everything. Sling it over your arm or strap it on your shoulder, and you'll have plenty of room to carry babies or car seats, and hold less-than-savory rags at arm’s length.

DJ Dawn

DJ Dawn is a Dallas based DJ and entrepreneur. She grew up surrounded by gospel, jazz, and classical influences from her father, who is a musician. The dirty south hip-hop scene also played a major role in her overall love and appreciation for different types of music. As she grew up, she became more captivated by genre-bending sounds which ultimately shaped her own. She has made her mark across the metroplex and has spun at corporate events, and venues such as The House of Blues, the historic Granada Theatre, for networks like TV One, and for luxury brands like Kendra Scott. She makes it her personal mission to inspire women to pursue their dreams, especially those in male-dominated industries.

Funky Picnic Brewery

Funky Picnic is ready to start a conversation with the community about craft beer! And because many great conversations begin around a table, we will have a full food menu to pair with our house-made brews. You may be wondering, "But isn't beer sometimes called 'liquid bread'?" You'd be right, but we also love sandwiches, and we hope you'll make yourself comfortable in our casual atmosphere of small tables and couches overlooking the brewhouse. “We see beer as a path to connection, creativity, and community”. Funky Picnic will be one of the only places in Fort Worth where you will be able to learn about brewing over a casual meal, help our brewers come up with new ideas, and start up new conversations with friends and family over beer and sandwiches. Let us help you discover that there really is a craft beer for every taste! Funky Picnic is currently under construction in our brewery and café in the South Main Village of Fort Worth's Near Southside!

Vaquero Coffee

Vaquero Coffee Company opened in 2018. It is located inside the rear portion of the Joe Diaches Credit Jeweler building in downtown Fort Worth, Texas at the corner of W. Weatherford Street and Houston Street. The goal of Vaquero Coffee Company is to provide a superior alternative to the corporate coffee chains at an equal or better price. Since opening, Christopher Rushing and Jonathan Heath have been serving both quality interpretations of classic drinks as well as daring new ventures into the uncharted territories of coffee, such as our signature mesquite-smoked Sid Richardson espresso. Vaquero Coffee Company's interior, designed by Jonathan Heath, reflects the hip sensibilities of the surrounding area while also paying tribute to Fort Worth's storied past. The cozy space offers the choice to observe passers-by in the glass-encased store-front, or watch the art of being a barista as it occurs in the openly-viewed espresso bar.
