Yesterday, I received the following email from Paul Frison at the Houston Technology Center:
“I have the pleasure of sharing with you wonderful news from HTC: the much anticipated new building addition to our Midtown facility is finally completed and ready to house new emerging technology companies in the heart of Houston’s technology business community.
The new expansion brings to completion the 50,000 sq. ft. building originally planned for the HTC in 1999 by the City of Houston.
During the long wait for the facility to be completed, HTC was able to establish its position as the center for entrepreneurship in Houston, build a large community of technology and business professionals and become the largest technology business incubator / accelerator in the state of Texas. We have helped more than a thousand companies expand their business and achieve milestones of growth, maturity and success, assist scores of companies collectively raise in excess of $500 million dollars, while assisting the economic development of our city.
More than just a building, The Houston Technology Center is a hub for personal and business networks, providing emerging technology companies the opportunity to connect with the people and services to expand their business to the next level. HTC is also home to many technology entrepreneurs, sharing space in a community of exciting and innovative companies. For more information on the HTC and our facility please visit our website at www.houstontech.org.
We would like to extend special thanks to HP and JP Morgan Chase Bank who helped us equip and furnish more than one half of our new building. We STILL need furniture for the other offices, however. If you have or know of anyone willing/able to donate chairs, work stations, tables, etc., please contact Sheila Whanger at firstname.lastname@example.org or (832) 476-9284.
I would like to extend an invitation to you to visit our new building. You can also learn more about the building by visiting our web site, provided courtesy of Informetrics, at http://www.htcbuilding.org/. Finally, take advantage of the special savings we are offering, for a limited time, on office space. To learn more about the HTC Grand Opening discounts or schedule a tour, call or email Sheila Whanger.
I hope to see you soon at one of our upcoming events or at our building at 410 Pierce St. (between Brazos and Bagby).
Paul M. Frison
President and CEO
Houston Technology Center”
