Starting a Business in Houston Webinar

We put together a webinar and invited successful Houston based founders to share expert tips & resources for participation in Houston’s startup and business environment. Houston has a robust network of enabling resources for people of colour so we have brought together some of the most successful black founders and business strategists in Houston to help you move from idea to execution.
