J.P. Morgan Chase Announces Sponsorship of Southern Dallas Entrepreneur Network

Have you heard the AMAZING news? J.P. Morgan Chase recently committed $75,000 to support the launch of the Southern Dallas Entrepreneur Network (SDEN)! With a central hub located at Red Bird Mall and two other satellite locations at UNT Dallas and Paul Quinn College, The SDEN will provide necessary training, tools, and resources to equip and empower entrepreneurs across the entire Southern Dallas County region. This expansion directly aligns with the work already underway with Mayor Mike Rawlings’ Grow South initiative and brings together a number of community, corporate, and civic partners. As the leader of this expansion, The DEC supports entrepreneurs through our “entrepreneur center” model by providing a physical location that serves entrepreneurs through education, mentorship, training, programs/events, shared co-working space, promotion, and access to capital. Our belief is that we can bring together strong solutions to support entrepreneurs in Southern Dallas and provide a source of economic development, workforce development, and community development. Much thanks to J.P. Morgan Chase for believing in this mission.
