Member Spotlight

Texas Blockchain Council

Please tell us about yourself:
Lee Bratcher: I was born in Austin and moved to Dallas about 15 years ago. Except for a stint in the Army, I have lived in Texas all of my life. My wife and I have two kids and we live in Richardson!

A brief overview of your line of work:
I founded the Texas Blockchain Council about two years ago. We are making Texas a leader in blockchain innovation through public policy research, educating legislators, conducting business development for our member companies, and attracting VC funds and entrepreneurs to Texas.

Why The Drawing Board?
We selected the Drawing Board because of the hospitable environment, the incredible aesthetics of the space, and the fact that it is located in the Richardson Innovation Quarter.  

A quote that you like or live by:
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” – MLK
