#GetPluggedDFW The Dallas Entrepreneur Center

It was a packed house at The Dallas Entrepreneur Center (The DEC) Wednesday night, where hundreds gathered for PLUGGED: Intro to the Dallas Startup Community. 

The event kicked-off with a networking happy hour, followed by a history of the startup community, and then, one-by-one, a number of successful entrepreneurs took to the stage with The DEC Co-founder Trey Bowles, where they answered a few questions, shared tips, and recalled their (often comical) memories from their early startup days.

We pulled together some photos from the night. Enjoy.
