The Dallas–Fort Worth (DFW) metroplex was the second fastest-growing metropolitan area in the nation in 2016 according to the United States Census Bureau, and has been among the top 10 fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the U.S. for years.
DFW experienced an increase of 145,000 residents in 2016 and this trend is projected to continue through 2030.
Dallas Tech Sector
According to Forbes, Dallas is quickly becoming a leader in the tech scene due to its fast-growing VC funded startups and job growth rate (4.1 percent), and its low median real estate purchase price ($197K).
Meanwhile, Business Insider recently ranked Dallas as the 11th “most high-tech city in the world” in August 2017 — climbing 17 spots in one year — due in part to its rapid increase in venture capitalists and “integration of technology into the city landscape.”
DFW Tech and Startup Highlights
- Dallas regional chamber initiatives, Talent Attraction & Say Yes to Dallas, are meant to attract and retain the, “best and brightest workers from around the world to Dallas.”
- Launch DFW is a hub for startups, technology, culture and events across the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area.

DFW has a wealth of talent and, well, wealth. More than 40 colleges and universities, including the Texas A&M University, University of North Texas and University of Texas Systems, provide local companies and startups with a large talent pool. As of 2014, Forbes determined that out of the world’s 1,645 billionaires, 25 of them resided in DFW. Now that’s a mean brew of capital and qualified applicants.
And I haven’t even mentioned the $5 billion and 50,000 job decision that has everyone waiting with bated breath. The Wall Street Journal recently named Dallas as a top contender in the race to win Amazon’s second HQ location, citing the state’s lack of income tax and a comparatively low cost of living as chief factors. Amazon plans to announce the winning city in early 2018.
