We take a complex process and automate it to make it easier for small businesses and individuals to launch their business dreams without having to hire high-priced professionals or worrying about administrative headaches.

Since 2015, we’ve grown from a lawyer and two online entrepreneurs into a team 90 strong – and you can bet we’re not done yet. We’re proud to have been ranked as one of the fastest-growing companies in Houston, nationally by the Inc 5000 as well as being listed as one of the Top Workplaces in the Houston Chronicle. Our mission is to break down barriers so anyone can follow their dreams and create something special for themselves and their communities.

To do that, we need someone to help us grow our teams so that we can continue to empower entrepreneurs to impact their communities.
