How connecting creatives is fueling this Houstonian's entrepreneurial drive

HOUSTON -- In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, Lawson Gow stepped in to help the best way he could: He offered heavily discounted rates for his new coworking campus, The Cannon, to anyone whose office space had been impacted by the storm.

Though construction on the entirety of The Cannon wasn't finished at the time, it was still a welcome offer to the small-business owners, startups, and creatives of Houston who needed somewhere to continue their livelihoods. But now The Cannon is ready for its grand opening on November 2, announcing with a bang the 17-acre West Houston hub for entrepreneurs, business professionals, developers, and creatives that it will eventually become.

Gow - son of David Gow, owner of CultureMap's parent company Gow Media - is passionate about the concept of building an entrepreneurial campus in his hometown in order to augment the city's resources for young startups and other creatives.
