Dublin Entrepreneurial Center (DEC)

The DEC is an energetic, professional hub dedicated to cultivating entrepreneurs and growing businesses in Dublin, Ohio.

The DEC’s Digs

Not all start-ups are created equal. Without resources that allow them to move from their favorite coffee shop or home basement office to an impressive office location, their companies can lose the ability to retain talent and business opportunities. The DEC is proud to offer a Class A, professional environment for start-ups of all financial statures to convey legitimacy and foster a collaborative environment. Whether it is a one person company or a start-up with 6-7 people, affordable community “hot spots”, cubicles or traditional office systems are available to lease. The modern, progressive design of the DEC offices allow for a community feel among tenants, with a variety of amenities. Find out more at decindublin.com
