Back for its seventh year, The State of Entrepreneurship presented by The DEC Network has become a tradition for celebrating the people, places and passions that keep the North Texas startup ecosystem thriving. The entire community comes out to cheer on the launches, fundings, exits and overall wins of the entrepreneurial community from the past year. This year's event takes place Wednesday, May 5, both in-person and virtually. Attendees will hear from the Dallas Task Force on Innovation and Entrepreneurship – including Mayor Eric Johnson and other members – as well as city officials, Fortune 500 executives and founders of some of 2020's breakout small businesses. Trey Bowles, co-chair of the Task Force and co-founder of The DEC Network, will emcee the event.
