The Best Texas Coworking Spaces

Boy and Girl Talking to Each Other

Texas coworking spaces can be found in four major cities: Dallas, Houston, Austin, and San Antonio.  Also, it is worth-noting that the startup community is becoming more and more interconnected within the state.

So for this feature, we thought we'd share with you the top coworking spaces in each city, highlighting those that accommodate tech startups. But before that, allow us to give you a quick lowdown on Texas' coworking history.

History of Coworking in Texas (2007-2008)

The first ever coworking space in Texas was The Creative Space. Located in the city of Bryan, the business had a 7-year-run before it finally closed in 2013. It was later replaced by Binary Space.

Most Dallas startups probably credit Cohabitat as being the first coworking space in DFW, founded around 2008. Houston started with Caroline Collective as the first coworking space there, which coincidentally was also founded around 2008. San Antonio eventually jumped into the movement, opening C4 in around 2006. In Austin, one of the first coworking spaces was Conjunctured, which was likewise established in 2008.

In addition to being founded around the same time, many of these spaces were started in actual houses. Many of these original coworking spaces have since closed down and many others later opened up in their wake. 

A lot of startup community members in Texas will refer to 2007-2008 as a real turning point for the startup community. We'd like to think that the emergence of Texas coworking spaces had some small role in creating that spark. From 2013 to 2015, coworking spaces emerged in smaller Texas cities, including Bryan, El Paso, Waco, and Denton.
