Empowering the Entrepreneurial and Tech Scene
The Words of Those Here Everyday
Coming from Houston, a big city, San Antonio was small in my eyes. Now that I work downtown, I see a growing city versus a city that’s already built.
My goal is to know everyone within the community so well that when a member reaches out to me looking for a certain skill, I immediately know someone.
I know trying to create something can be scary. As the Office Manager, I want to make sure our members feel supported, and know we are here to help.
We Want You
