Actually, Dallas is doing very well on the StartUp scene. We have a rapidly growing market in Downtown. Dallas keeps being mentioned in articles as the newest Startup sweetheart spot. You have most of the West End now dedicated to "creative office space" aka office space targeting tech companies. Then there is a large number of coworking spaces in the CBD as well. I can list 5 or 6 of them off right now in Downtown. More are coming because the market is strong for it.
Deep Ellum has some space dedicated to the startup scene as well. We just had the Capitol One Tech Week which before now has stayed only in certain large enough startup cities. Dallas made the cut.
Of course, you also have Alto 211 which its sole purpose is creative office space and has the world famous Tech Wildcatters incubator offices. They have over 100 companies every quarter that they accept into their program. Many of whom call Alto 211 their HQ. I will remind you those companies come from all over the world as well because the Tech Wildcatters are one of the top five startup incubators in the world.
Dallas is doing lots of great things in the startup scene and its growing.
