TECHSPACE MAY 2017 NEWSLETTER
On April 27th, TechSpace, ConnectMedia, the West Houston Chamber of Commerce, PDR and the local business community celebrated the grand opening of TechSpace Houston, and the event was a huge success! The evening kicked off with an official ribbon cutting ceremony with the West Houston Chamber of commerce’s President and CEO, Jeannie Bollinger, TechSpace CEO Vic Memenas, and Vice President of TechSpace Brendan McGee.
Next was a special presentation by Mark Bellamy of PDR, the company who designed the new Houston space, about co-working and the future of the workplace. An interior architecture tour was also available to all attendees. To finish off the night, a happy hour co-sponsored by ConnectMedia and PDR followed with cocktails, appetizers, raffle opportunities and of course lots of networking!

BUSINESS TIP OF THE MONTH
This is a common mistake seen in the startup world: someone will get so excited about their new idea that they quit their day job prematurely, and then very quickly run out of money. Most succesful small business owners stick with their nine to five up until they are absolutely sure their new business will take off. Working overtime for an extra bit will prepare you financially and mentally for running your business full time – you will have additional income while preparing your product for launch and be used to a heavy workload when it comes time to put your all into your new startup. Take the smart route and hold onto that day job for a bit longer than you think necessary, it will make all the difference down the road.
