The Rise of the Rest Road Trip with Steve Case is on its seventh tour, this time hitting Dallas, Memphis, Birmingham, Chattanooga and Louisville. On Monday night, Dallas-based startup Nickson won a $100,000 investment.
According to Steve Case via the Dallas Business Journal, Texas companies get about 2 percent of the share of U.S. venture investments. The Rise of the Rest Road Trip brings awareness to the heaps of potential that lie within cities such as Dallas.
Nickson competed with seven other companies who pitched before the panel, but ultimately their service of designing and installing furnishings and decor to apartments was the winner. The service is great for anyone who wants to take the stress out of decorating their own place. Now they can leave that task up to Nickson and pay a monthly fee for the furnishings and decor during the length of their lease. The service is disrupting the real estate space — a $217 trillion dollar industry.
