Founded in 2013, the Dallas Entrepreneur Center (DEC) was “born from a shared vision among small business and entrepreneurship advocates, the DEC believes investment in entrepreneurs is investment in the community.”

The DEC is a collaborative space full of experts, thought leaders, and resources for the Dallas startup scene. Through mentorship, in-person training and financial assistance programs, “the DEC gives entrepreneurs access to leaders who have the resources to support their business goals and the personal knowledge and experiences to educate entrepreneurs on what it takes to launch, manage and grow a successful business.”

You can follow along with the DEC on their website, Facebook, or Twitter pages. There are a variety of membership options available, so check them out!
