Today, 1776 announced six new members into the Startup Federation, and we’re proud to hear that The DEC is representing Dallas!

“The Dallas Entrepreneur Center (The DEC) is honored to be joining the Startup Federation alongside such leaders in the incubator community such as 1776, 1871, and Austin-based Capital Factory,” said Trey Bowles, co-founder of the DEC. “We believe that building a collaborative ecosystem among the entrepreneurial community is a top priority and partnering with leading organizations in the Federation create the opportunity to support entrepreneurs from all over the world as they travel, connect, and grow their businesses.”

The Startup Federation is a worldwide network of top incubators, and membership in the Federation allows for opportunity for growth and collaboration of resources.
