Two Houston entrepreneurs have announced plans to open a non-profit collaborative work space called Station Houston in the second half of 2016. In addition to around 10,000 square feet of co-working space, the facility will also serve as a business incubator for technology start-ups. “We’ll be taking in early-stage companies and help provide them an environment where they can grow and move on to the next phase of their existence,” co-founder Emily Keeton told the Houston Business Journal. Models for Station Houston include Austin’s Capital Factory and Chicago’s 1871, both of which have signed on as advisors. Keeton and her fellow co-founder Blair Garrou are currently looking for locations in close-in neighborhoods like Montrose and Downtown.
