      In late 2009, when Gabriella Draney-Zielke started Dallas-based startup accelerator Tech Wildcatters, the accelerator was still a relatively new idea; there were only a handful at that time; by now, there are hundreds.

A full 61% have no social media presence at all. Even those who are on Twitter, Facebook, and other networks rarely join the conversation.
