Impact Hub Houston and Sketch City bring you this special edition of Open Project Night highlighting projects focusing on SDG 8 – Decent Work & Economic Growth + SDG 9 – Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure.

Connect and collaborate with passionate people who are working on projects, ventures, and collaborations to improve the city of Houston. If you have an idea, are working on something, or are looking for ways to collaborate with people who are doing work at the intersection of innovation and impact this event is for you! You can still join us, even if you will not be presenting a project!
