In a year’s time of starting the program, I have doubled my revenue and number of employees. Build Up Houston has allowed me to do business in a more professional manner, taught me to lead my team, and have a stronger back office.

"Build Up Houston helped me better understand cash flow, setting goals and put me in contact with participants that have helped me grow.""Build Up Houston helped me better understand cash flow, setting goals and put me in contact with participants that have helped me grow. One participant and I are bidding projects together. I am now a distributor for another participant as I added a new product. Further, another participant has become a good mentor to me, providing me with a lot of contacts that have contributed to the success of my business. The program also impressed the importance of making personnel changes quickly rather than hoping for the best.”
