Independent spots for entrepreneurs and startups

Let’s get one thing straight; Texas hospitality is special and unique, which explains why so many businesses are being established in this state. The “can do” and “how can I help you succeed” ecosystem allow for the startup community to thrive with passion! I believe that whatever it is you decide, you should do it with all your heart. We all know that with passion and courage we can create amazing things, offer true value, help others, be happy, productive and successful. That’s the Denton living: the fastest growing city in the country with a thriving community of innovators doing transformational things from the ground up. Everything Denton does comes from the heart — We Denton Do it!

Over the past year, we’ve seen exponential growth within the tech, entrepreneurial and even the food and beverage community in Denton. Innovation is at the core of this city as it serves as the catalyst for more to come. These days, there are many cool spots, café, lounges, and co-working spaces that make Denton unique. It’s at these meeting places that innovation merges with passion. This is where the magic happens! Here are LaunchDFW’s top 5 meeting places for an entrepreneur or startup doing business in Denton:
