A quick search for top coworking spaces in Texas will flood your computer screen with hubs in Austin, Texas, now hailed as the “start-up mecca of America,” according to CNBC. But other growing Texas cities – like Dallas – shouldn’t be overlooked in a search for the best coworking spaces in Texas. Dallas, which was ranked 17th in a recent Surge Cities index, for its rapid job growth, limited regulations, and “thriving start-up scene,” is also a key player in entrepreneurship today.
And in fact, the whole state of Texas topped WalletHub’s 2019 list of best states to start a business in for the second year running, thanks to its business incentives and outstanding small business growth. Houston, San Antonio, Austin, and Dallas are all offering up cutting-edge coworking spaces, well-evolved past some cool décor and a high-speed Internet connection.
