Smart, driven, and talented people live and work in Addison (obviously, just look at you!), which is why the Addison TreeHouse was created. The Town of Addison and the Dallas Entrepreneur Center worked together to found the Addison TreeHouse, which is “a resource centered co-working space focused on providing aspiring entrepreneurs with education, programing/events, and mentorship, all of which are vital for the growth and sustainability of businesses,” according to its website. But it’s not just a place for members to come and work – the Addison TreeHouse also hosts regular events and speakers, and gives access to mentors and advisers, to give small startups their best chance for success.

This “night of inspiration” is presented by StandupLD.org, a nonprofit support network that helps parents and educators support and inspire children with learning differences.

The panel will be moderated by a dyslexic entrepreneur, Eric McGehearty. This event, taking place on November 13 from 7 to 9 p.m. is free and open to the public, but you must RSVP online.
