North Texas Startup Report
Welcome to the first North Texas Commission Monthly Startup Report. This report is aimed at being an easy way for you to learn about and connect with emerging companies in North Texas. Each generation produces a new class of entrepreneurs and future leaders of our industries, communities and region. Crucial to developing the much coveted Unicorns of the startup world is making sure there is a healthy ecosystem for forward thinking ideas to thrive. So we must continually connect with these new innovators in order to learn trends, new ideas and create new opportunities for our region and our businesses.
North Texas has a robust and exciting entrepreneurial landscape and here at the North Texas Commission we’d like to bring this to you. Each month this report will give a brief overview of organizations we think you should know about. Each young organization will represent a new way of thinking or bring you a new solution.
If you would like any additional information please contact Taylor Schrang at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Families separated by distance need a better way to create meaningful memories when they interact online. Kinskii utilizes ‘gamified’ video chat experiences which enable young ones to stay engaged by playing games with their relatives embedded in the video chat experience. This will allow parents and family members to actually play with children even if they can’t be with them, such as military families that can now have activities to share. This company is in pre-launch, but you can sign up for more information on their website.
Virtual Visit helps nursing home providers communicate better and more securely with the families of their residents and provides a HIPPA compliant way for families to stay connected with their loved ones in full-time care facilities. Families can get regular updates from providers and coordinate family visits in a way that saves time and improves care. Facilities can provide care that is respectful of and responsive to individual patient preferences, needs and values and ensures that patient values guide all care decisions. Contact and communication are central to meeting the resident’s social and emotional needs.
With a world revolving around tech, often people catch themselves without pen and paper. Maybe a date needs to be written down, a discussion leads a brainstorm or someone just wants to doodle. Draw Attention has capitalized on the tech-heavy consumer market by creating white board stickers for laptops. Pop one of these stickers on a laptop lid (or anywhere, for that matter), and the space transforms into a blank canvas for any possible purpose: a billboard, a white board, a scratch pad and an invitation. It’s the perfect solution.
