I interrupt your regularly scheduled stylish and crafty content to let you know about a couple of things coming up that you should check out if you’re in Houston.
Something that I don’t mention very frequently on here is that I’m a member of the Junior League of Houston. It’s a fantastic organization and one for which I am proud to volunteer. Every year the League contributes over $2 million dollars (!!!) in volunteer time and direct financial support to the community. One way we support our efforts is through our cookbooks and this one, Peace Meals, is my favorite. So if you’re looking for a holiday gift this season, consider a cookbook. And if you buy one, there’s a significant likelihood that I’ll be the one wrapping and shipping your order
And here are some upcoming Houston startup events you should check out:
SURGE Accelerator Applications Open – Houston’s own energy-focused business accelerator SURGE is currently accepting applications for their spring class. I had an amazing, amazing experience doing an accelerator program (Excelerate Labs) this summer and have also had an opportunity to meet some of the founders of SURGE. Even curious? Take the first step and apply!
Wednesday 11/7 Houston Startup Demo Day – Come out and hear some great Houston startups pitch at START.
Friday 11/9 – Sunday 11/11 Startup Weekend Houston – I’m going to be there as a mentor + judge and cannot wait to see what people are dreaming and coding up all weekend. Register here and use code FRIEND-20 to save $20! Hope to see you there.
