Showcasing Local Startups in Denton

Join Stoke on their second annual Denton Startup Crawl

Downtown Denton’s familiar landmarks, like the Courthouse-on-the-Square and Recycled Books, are neighbors to a number of unique small businesses and startups. If you’ve ever peered into the windows of the buildings on the square and wondered who works there, here is your chance to learn about the hard working inhabitants of some of these offices.

To showcase companies on the square and at the Railyard, Stoke is hosting its second annual Startup Crawl on Thursday, November 1st from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM. Immediately following the walking tour portion, Denton Startup Night will round out the evening back at Stoke.
