Countless emails, phone calls, and in-person meetings still won't fix the incompetence at Tech Wildcatters. Trust me, I've tried. My CPA has tried. My secretary has tried. My partner has tried. It's pointless. They are incompetent.
Late paperwork. Incorrect paperwork. Missing paperwork.
Late tax documents. Incorrect tax documents. Missing tax documents.
The only things they ever send out consistently are the misleading and fictitious newsletters and status reports. To sum it up, those newsletters and company reports are the biggest collection of lies.
That's why I don't support Tech Wildcatters anymore. Probably why so many people have stopped supporting them.
It explains why their brand and their startups have gone downhill.

Nearly 5 years ago, I made a single investment at Tech Wildcatters and joined their mentor network. Its a decision that has been a thorn in my side ever since. The annual investor report is a joke. Financial and tax documents are late and usually wrong. Responses are slow and wrong. Management is dubious and just plain weird. They seem to be more concerned with putting out fake news in their newsletter and traveling the world on the investors nickel. To my disbelief, they charge investors over 75% management fees. 1-5% is the industry range. Since the latest CEO took over about 3 years ago, he has not been able to find any new investors. So he's been raiding the old investors piggy bank to pay for his traveling. That's why no investor has ever received a return on their investment since the company was founded in 2009. What a scam. Needless to say, I quit being a mentor (along with just about every other investor) and do not recommend this company for anything.

They are great for "Startups"! They have an exciting new vision and concept to set themselves apart form any other firm. I anticipate they will be exploding in the "Startups" space.

My advisor and I visited Tech Wildcatters after applying for their annual accelerator. It was not at all what they claimed. I have no idea where their website pictures come from but it wasn't of their office or employees. There are no employees except this one chubby guy. They were supposed to have mentors and investors meet us there. None showed up and the only person we met was the CEO. The office was totally empty in the middle of the day. Then we found the hundreds of bad reviews online. Looks like this business is just about out of business.

Applied to their accelerator program, which they call the Tech Wildcatters Gauntlet. Got invited to their semi finals, and for the first time, was in their office in downtown Dallas. They attempted to decorate and make the office look cool, but it was not. I've been to accelerators on the east and west coasts and this was nothing like that. Smelled of mold and cats (I have an allergy). Elevators were like coffins. A heavy layer of dust on everything. No cool tech gadgets or anything your would expect in an accelerator. And their web site showed 8 partners and employees and dozens of mentor staff. I only meet a couple people that were associated with them, and when I asked who worked there its only 2 people. And there were the 2 people I thought would be the last ones to be working at an accelerator, even one as bad as this. They told me that most of the partners and mentors won't show up until the end of the program. The mixer started late even though I was on time, and they actually had the nerve to ask me to help setup. The last day, I meet people in the lobby of the building. None had anything at all positive to say about Tech Wildcatters and told me that they do not really have the money to invest and that most of the mentors have quit. Told me that some companies finished the program and got checks that bounced. Got online at starbucks and saw all of the bad reviews and press coverage. 3 days I will never get back.
