About Us

History

In a mere seven years, the Dublin Entrepreneurial Center has grown from two tenants to nearly 150, and charted the course for innovation and support of start-up ventures. The award-winning DEC began as a partnership between the City of Dublin and TechColumbus to provide services and promote an environment to increase deal flow for potential entrepreneurial and technology development resulting in more businesses and job creation in Dublin and the surrounding area.

In its new, expanded location in Dublin’s renowned Metro Center office campus, the DEC combines an entrepreneurial center and data center – marking another unique first in Central Ohio. DEC tenants have access to the robust DubLink broadband network and, through the adjacent Metro Data Center, data storage in a highly secure environment.
