May 29, 2012 - PRLog -- Local couple and business partners, Fernell and Toni Hogan, are vying for a chance at one of 12 grants being awarded by Chase and Living Social's Mission: Small Business initiative. The husband and wife team collectively, and individually, operate businesses in real estate and graphics design. They've worked together from home for the past three years and now want to expand their businesses by moving their office to a new coworking center in northwest Houston.

The new coworking center, The Office Connexion, will not only offer the Hogans an escape from the home office and occasional visits to the local coffee shop to meet clients. It will be a place that other local entrepreneurs and small business owners can turn to for business development resources, workspace, and collaboration with other independents.

The Hogans's response when asked on the grant application, “What would a $250k grant mean to your business plan and how will you utilize the funds to ensure long-term growth and stability?”

“Being awarded a $250,000 grant would allow us to expand the reach of our current services [real estate and graphics design] to small business owners while creating new opportunities for innovation, creativity, and collaboration. We would be able to provide affordable workspace and access to corporate-style amenities for the small business owners in a community that provides support not traditionally available to entrepreneurs.”

The business owners are rallying the support of their family, friends, and local community to help them accumulate 250 votes required to be considered for a $250,000 grant being awarded by Mission: Small Business. Supporters may cast their votes by visiting www.missionsmallbusiness.com.
