Happy Columbus Day!
Last Wednesday, Houston’s startup community leaders, entrepreneurs, and technology experts converged at the Houston Technology Center’s annual Innovation Conference and Showcase, (#ICS2013 on twitter).
Russ Capper, with The BusinessMakers Radio show interviewed Walter Ulrich, President of the Houston Technology Center during the innovation showcase. Here’s the interview, in case you missed the conference: http://bit.ly/thebusinessmakers-houstontech.
