tyler-pr-gray_8x10_026-copy-e1331065288459BY RICHARD TYLER It’s 2014 and it is time for the seventh annual Newspring Business Plan Competition. The competition is held in partnership with the Center for Entrepreneurship at Houston Community College (HCC). I am proud to say that I have been involved with the competition from the start. For the first five years I was a Business Plan Advisor to teams competing. Last year I was a Judge in the competition finals and this year I will again be a Judge in the finals as well as a Co-Facilitator with Jack Barry. Jack does an excellent job conducting the training and the contest participants thoroughly enjoy his style as well as gain from his wealth of real world knowledge. Jack will be conducting the majority of competition training sessions however he has been gracious enough to ask me to Co-Facilitate part of the program. Recently, Sandra Louvier, the Director of the Center for Entrepreneurship at HCC was interviewed by Russ Capper, the Host of “The BusinessMakers Radio Show”. Sandra does a marvelous job discussing the Center for Entrepreneurship and explaining the partnership HCC has with Newspring. She talks about Jack and his work on the Newspring Business Plan Competition and I even get a mention. I encourage you to watch the interview and learn something about this very unique program and why it is experiencing tremendous success. You might even get inspired about entrepreneurship and decide you want to get involved. If so, I am sure Newspring or the Center for Entrepreneurship will be happy to speak with you.

Newspring are followers of Christ: professionals, business people, artists, teachers, and colleagues who believe that helping others to sustain themselves and their families financially is an important part of our Christian witness.
Newspring is totally focused on the Spring Branch area of Houston. Those of us who work with Newspring believe that many people in Spring Branch suffer the effects of economic instability. Families in Spring Branch are constantly on the move, seeking employment and better housing. It is difficult for many Spring Branch businesses to network into the broader Houston marketplace. The primary goal of Newspring is to help stabilize Spring Branch, especially the Latino population there. How? By starting and nurturing businesses in the area. We are experienced business men and women who want to share what we know about business. And we also help Spring Branch businesses by expanding their market opportunities, offering our collective network of business contacts and potential customers far beyond the borders of Spring Branch. Newspring was organized in 2006 and is a 501(c)(3) public charity.
