In 2008 Alexander Muse, Co-Founder of ShopSavvy, decided to start hosting a regular startup-focused happy hour for the North Texas area. More 5,000 local entrepreneurs have joined us for beer and fellowship. The newspaper wrote about the event and lots of new companies have been formed from the relationships created at the event – for example Alexander met Rylan Barnes and joined together to start ShopSavvy. It has been a very fun couple of years and the event has grown hugely.

The Dallas Startup Happy Hour, Presented by LaunchDFW.

The Venue

We rotate around venues in Dallas. Send us a message if you want to host 100-200 startup entrepreneurs.

The Date

Check the calendar for the date of each monthly event.

The Format

The event begins at 5:30PM with cocktails and sometimes light hors d’oeuvres. We try to keep this event fairly informal and use it as an opportunity to meet other people in the tech/startup community.

Sponsor the Event

Sponsorships start at $250 per event. It's a great way to get your brand in front of the community. Reach out to us at if you're interested.
