(Future) Textile Lab & Entrepreneurship Center

The Gulfton Textile Lab & Entrepreneurship Center, a small batch manufacturing incubator and accelerator, is focused on leveraging the strengths of the diverse Gulfton population by connecting residents to new manufacturing skills and business opportunities, and building prosperous pathways for residents in Southwest Houston neighborhoods.

The Gulfton Textile Lab/Small Business Entrepreneurship Center will be a 9,000 square foot soft goods makerspace and incubator located on the first floor of the new Connect South Apartments at Hillcroft St. and High Star Road. The space will include industrial textile equipment for cut and sew fabrication, classroom spaces for digital technology, maker workshops, small business development classes, a flex space for events and larger meetings, as well as seven micro retail spaces for small business prototyping and market testing.
