Gabriel Shepherd

Bio: Gabriel's current passion project is SxVegas (South by Vegas), an idea he conceptualized while attending the tech centric conference SxSW (South by Southwest) in early 2012. With his enthusiasm for the Vegas Tech community, he is setting out to market the southern Nevada community as a whole at SxSW 2013 through a series of events that will highlight why the buzz about today's Las Vegas is for real. He lives and loves the city and wants the rest of the country to feel the same excitement about our community that he does. During the transition he was able to get a crash course on current startup techniques by investing in and holding the executive director position at the BoomStartup seed accelerator. This TechStars Network affiliate program was ranked one of the top 15 accelerators in the country. His current position as a partner with the Vegas Tech Fund allows him to help empower amazing founders and startups passionate about building community in downtown Las Vegas.
