An interactive map highlighting all things innovative in the North Texas region was introduced by Trey Bowles, CEO and co-founder of the Dallas Entrepreneur Center during the 4th Annual State of Entrepreneurship event.
Wednesday evening’s announcement was made at the Bomb Factory in Deep Ellum where about 900 founders, investors, startups, and others celebrated the entrepreneur community.
The growing community led to the creation of the maps by the Dallas Regional Chamber in collaboration with Dallas Innovates.
NEW TOOL FOR THE ENTREPRENEUR’S ARSENAL
“The growth of support resources available to the entrepreneurial community in Dallas-Fort Worth over the last few years has been tremendous. We’ve gone from having just and a handful of co-working spaces to now having more than 55, that are spread all across the region,” said Duane Dankesreiter, senior vice president of research and innovation at the Dallas Regional Chamber.
The interactive maps include coworking, accelerators and incubators, innovation centers, makerspaces, and executive offices. Each tab represents different areas of the ecosystem. The maps will be updated as more resources become available and will remain an active source of information for North Texas.
“These spaces are not just a place to work, they’re creating a family that supports one another, provides mentorship and programming, and are often built by the community, for the community. That is the true measure of our entrepreneurial growth and of our collaborative spirit,” Dankesreiter said.
