Houston Summit for the Creative Economy

Last week we had an opportunity to attend the Houston Summit for the Creative Economy.

The goal of the summit was to plan initiatives that will revolutionize the Houston economy. It was held at Rice University and featured a selection of panels and strategy labs that focused on industries from food to nanotechnology to marketing.

Schipulite Katie Laird presented alongside JR Cohen of weSLGT and Alfred Cervantes of Houston Film Commission in a strategy lab that focused on creativity, technology and community.

After each presenter gave attendees some background on their area of expertise, the lab moderator asked attendees to work in groups to come up with an actionable item that incorporates creativity, technology and community.

And that was tough.

But we worked at it, and when it was all said and done, we came up with an idea for a database that would serve as a resource for people seeking services in any industry available in Houston from film production to design to event coordinating – with the goal of identifying and promoting the brand of the city to eventually increase its revenue.

  1. Really looking forward to the next few days when people start properly aggregating this information.Will be interesting to see if what Google reports seem to match the studies we have done on the basis of your experiments for our Seo Company India website

  2. I’ve been told that Clickbank makes it extremely tough to get paid through compelling you to offload quite a lot of very different items using differing debit cards and Paypal. I would really like to make use of Clickbank sadly I am concerned about this situation. Do you know if it is the case?

  3. I get the most rewards out of my articles and reviews through the use of social book-marking and social network sites. So now whenever I post articles to EZA or GoArticles or wherever I always publicize it on bebo, facebook and Tumblr next I save it with a few book-marking web-sites such as Folkd and Diigo. Since I’ve been undertaking this I have seen my article stats shoot up by well over 140%

  4. I want to take up as an on line marketer, yet , I’m not sure where to begin. My good friend says that Ebay is likely the most suitable associates program for learners. What do you think? Thanks a lot.
