We're allllll about adding color to the streets of #DowntownHouston & Steffany Brady Art's piece, Brilliant Tapestry, is all we've ever wanted. Inspired by the diversity of #Houston, the pattern represents a tapestry of cultures & the blank space symbolises the ever-welcoming attitude toward new visitors, residents and communities of the #BayouCity. https://bit.ly/37hsGPr

DOWNTOWN IS GEEKED OUT FOR INNOVATION. We are THRILLED to announce the opening of the Downtown Launchpad, a 17,000 square foot space dedicated to accelerating innovation in the heart of Houston.

Anchored by nationally recognized startup accelerators MassChallenge, gener8tor, and globally recognized incubator Impact Hub Houston, this space will serve fellow #Houstonians in a variety of ways: idea incubation, entrepreneur boot camps, community events, workforce development, innovation labs, creatives, coworking and corporate innovation.

In addition, the Launchpad is part of The Cannon's integrated “vertical village” surrounded by a community of entrepreneurs, small businesses and services—unlike any other workspace in the city.
