UH's lifestyle and entertainment magazine - by students, for students

Local photographer, digital marketer and founder of artist collectives Kevin Aguirre is no stranger to photographing the city. When asked about what stands out most to him about Houston, he zeroed in on its businesses. Come down to RED Labs, hosted by UH alum-owned Saint Arnold Brewery.

Hosted by Saint Arnold’s

Saint Arnold Brewery is on the edge of Downtown for craft beer, craft food, games, vibrant art and fantastic city views.

The space is located next door to the Brewery and Beer Hall. Guests are able to explore the biergarten-inspired space, sample brew in the tasting room, get a peek at the tank farm, and even host private events inside the facility.

This annual event is a celebration of entrepreneurship, the newest startups and small businesses from University of Houston accelerators and Rice University, and the community that champions them.

The showcase allows you to engage with these businesses, sign up for pre-orders, and buy products at their booths. Teams have recorded their pitches for you to learn about them in advance, watch during the event, or review afterward.

The teams spend the summer attending startup-focused curriculum sessions, getting advice from startup founders and community mentors, and working on their startups.
