Why Deep Ellum

Why Deep Ellum

Hooligan does most of it's work inside Dallas' historic Deep Ellum entertainment and startup district east of downtown. The blueprints for Hooligan were scribbled on napkins (and yeah, iPads) late into the night at venues like Three Links, Twilite, Double Wide, Anvil Pub, and Mokah Coffee Bar in our earliest days.

We love the atmosphere here. The eclectic mix of people on the streets and great vibes from the growing startups in the area makes it a perfect place to get our creative juices flowing. We have our original Hooligan safehouse in Deep Ellum and when we need to clean up and look nice, we use the conference rooms at The Common Desk for client meetings. Common Desk is one of Dallas' first co-working spaces - and the place we currently call our HQ. 

So why Dallas? 

Dallas is the fourth largest business market in the U.S. Nearly two dozen Fortune 500 companies HQ here, including AT&T, Toyota North America, 7-Eleven, and Exxon/Mobil. 25 billionaires reside in Dallas and the area is flooded with angel and VC investors looking for prime opportunities to invest in emerging startups. 

Yes...you have to prove to the investors here in Texas that your business can make money. That's cool with us because those are the only startups we build.

Underground Underdogs

Underground Underdogs

 

The last two years have been absolute insanity but nothing short of amazing here at Hooligan. New partnerships, product launches and our very own growing ventures syndicate continue to reinforce us as a threat. Every single step forward earned, not given. Action, not whispers of what could be. 

We’re entering markets strategically and seeding new technologies in targeted areas. All of which are grass roots, sustainable small businesses that leverage tech. Through sweat, hard work and tenacity we’ve forged an underground eco system as dangerous to our competitors as it is artful in its fruition. 

We keep adapting and learning better ways to provide value and invade markets. We’ve carried each other through thick and thin. We’ve built, scaled and deployed products and companies with no intention of slowing down now. We’re as lean as it gets, but as bold as they come. Beware of the predators you can’t see. The technologies being bootstrapped in dark rooms, the veiled Hooligans who wield pixels and craft code.
