HOUSTON, May 09, 2008 — BrandExtract, LLC was among the companies featured as "Houston's leading and most exciting entrepreneurs" at Houston Technology Center's (HTC) annual fundraising gala last night.
The sold-out event, which honored Michael Holthouse, president of Holthouse Interests for his entrepreneurial contributions to Houston, was attended by 450 business leaders and entrepreneurs. It was co-chaired by Bob Dussler and Kim Padgett.
"We have been active with Houston Technology Center since its inception and we're proud to be involved with an organization like this that helps technology startup companies," said BrandExtract CEO Jonathan Fisher, who was featured at the gala. "Like HTC, BrandExtract is focused on guiding growing companies."
HTC is a business accelerator that assists Houston-based emerging technology companies within several key sectors: Energy, Information Technology, Life Sciences, Nanotechnology and NASA/Aerospace technologies.
As in past years, BrandExtract provided branding and communications expertise to HTC by designing the center's gala invitation and event program. The designs of both pieces showcased the gala theme "A Night with the Stars" in a salute to entrepreneurs.
"We greatly appreciate the knowledgeable advice and highly professional work provided by BrandExtract," said Walter Ulrich, President and CEO, Houston Technology Center. "With BrandExtract's help, our gala sold out."
One of HTC's preferred service providers, BrandExtract has designed numerous marketing materials for HTC, and Fisher has served as an advisor during several HTC client presentations to help them test venture capital pitches and marketing presentations. BrandExtract also attends HTC events throughout the year.
