Join us for real talk with real people! This months guest speaker will be Chris Church, founder and CEO of MacroFab.
Join us for the rebrand and reboot of OpenCoffee to “Houston Unfiltered!” We’re bringing you a new speaker each month to help spark frank discussion and build a community of entrepreneurs, investors, and techies interested in supporting and learning from one another — without filters, self-editing or judgement. Each monthly morning meetup will feature a local leader who has ventured down the startup path and will open up about their lessons learned, how they failed forward, won big, faced tough decisions, and everything in between.
As an interactive program, participants are encouraged to ask questions and share their own experiences and insights. The types of topics you can expect: breaking up with a cofounder, relationships and family as an entrepreneur, the latest adventures in failing forward, team challenges and self-worth, and how to stay motivated during adversity.
