“We were making steady progress to get things rolling at Liongard and used coffee shops as our office space. The thought of moving into a standard office space was stifling because we wanted some level of activity and interaction. We heard about Station Houston on the radio, visited, and signed up on the same day! Station Houston really helped us accelerate our pace. JR and the team really care about their members and check in regularly on how we’re doing. Essentially, the environment at Station is super positive, collaborative, and high energy, which is just what a startup needs.” – Joe Alapat, Liongard
Created by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs, Station gets high-tech startups on track to succeed by connecting them with high-impact mentorship, resources, education, and, most importantly, each other. We’d like to help you, too!
