I’m proud of the city where I grew up and am now raising my own kids.  Although not a popular tourist destination, there are a lot of great things happening here, and here, and here, and here, and here–including a burgeoning start-up scene.  Houston Tech Street is just more evidence of that.

Houston Tech Street is an event that will have an open and collaborative platform for the community to learn, share, showcase and promote their creative and innovative ideas, expertise and technologies for better living.  The inaugural event will be November 20, 2013.    You can learn more about it here.

They are already putting up content on their blog, including a piece I recently wrote on crowdfunding.  Go check it out.
