MUST SEE: Coworking space eCitySocial for entrepreneurs Heights 77008

Coworking space eCitySocial is a space dedicated to small business entrepreneurs and professionals.  The found Marc Frazier was formerly an IT director for an oil and gas services company.  After a small term at the Houston Technology Center, an incubator for small business to raise capital and get the experience and support to grow a business, Marc decided to create a space with less formality and more celebration.

Located on near 11th street, on 1123 Yale, in the Historic Heights, eCitySocial is a renovated 1920's home that offers conference room space, wireless internet, private office space and back office services (mail drop, copying, and printing) In the second 1920 home there is space to hold events.

"Part of the inspiration for this space came from Festival Internacional Cervantino" which is an annual festival for the performing arts and culture held in Guanajuato, Mexico.  "We wanted to take that same festival/social atmosphere and create an environment where that can happen.

When you get to the yellow house on Yale, you will see a handpainted image Cervantinos on one of the window panes to honor and remind visitors of the inspiration.  The coffee served is donation based rather than offered via menu like other competitors.  You can work, read, collaborate or meditate.

There's more inspiration that Marc's vision holds.  At eCitySocial Marc is dedicated to giving back to the community.  He is working with a local group for an outreach to youth on Friday evenings.  

He also sponsors local artists' works such as John Paul Hartman who is a mix media conceptual artist.  Another term John Paul uses is "assemblages" for those who are art aficionados. In the rear of eCitySocial the garage has been converted to showcase local artists' work.

When you drive by, some days you can find an airstream mobile food kitchen, called "What's Up Cupcake", a local Heights business with a strong local following.
