Entrepreneur Video Series

Being an entrepreneur seems to be part of the city's DNA. Perhaps it stems from the wildcatter days, when prospectors staked their futures on the search for oil and, in the process, lost and won several fortunes in one lifetime. That spirit lives on in the thousands of entrepreneurs who work long hours with little sleep, often risking their life savings, a steady income and other life amenities to turn their bright ideas into reality. In this CultureMap special editorial series Profiles of Innovation, contributor Greg Scheinman and CultureMap staff writers capture the spirit of the men and women who make Houston an entrepreneur's dream.
