Officials at UHV spoke with the CEO of Innovation Collective about economic development

VICTORIA, Texas—– The University of Houston Victoria was joined by Nick Smoot the Founder and CEO of Innovation Collective. His visit to the campus was to give more information about the possible economic development opportunities.

“With innovation collective we work with communities of all sizes across this country. Typically they are towns that are kind of trying to figure out their next step in retaining young people, attracting and building talent in their community. What it would look like in Victoria is that we deploy this whole community of people who want better. That’s a good way to think about it when I say want better it means better lives, better jobs, better sleep and better health,” said Nick Smoot, the Founder & CEO of Innovation Collective.

Smoot says, they plan to implement different activities like local storytelling nights, personal growth seminars and he’s hoping they can get started within the next 30 to 45 days.
