GeniusDen Incubator

We are a business incubator in Deep Ellum offering a spectrum of coworking, office and meeting options, weekly startup / business growth workshops and sessions.


GeniusDen is an incubator in the Deep Ellum neighborhood on the east side of downtown Dallas.

Our three-part mission: 

  1. To bring the future into the present.
  2. To be a force multiplier.
  3. To interrupt cycles of poverty – socially and personally.

We are a community where founders grow as people, as well as the companies they build.

We provide learning opportunities so our members can meet with advisors, mentors and investors with core startup knowledge. As a matter of course, we introduce GeniusDen Members to customers, vendors and capital.

If you’re a startup with your core team in place, a minimally viable product, and paying customers and you want help scaling your company, then let’s talk. We provide the space and community your startup needs.

We are an incubator, not just coworking. There is a gap in the current offerings for startup office space.  There are coffee shops or coworking for getting launched and for freelancers. There are several coworking spaces in the central core of Dallas including downtown and Deep Ellum, but there are no incubators focusing resources and deliberately creating a long term space specifically serving founder teams.


We offer remote memberships, open desk space, dedicated desks and offices at competitive month-to-month rates.
