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.
