Our June meeting of “Coffee Talk” will feature as guest speaker Founder and Lead Consultant of I.O. Infinite Opportunities Carina Boston Pinales. Carina will share her experience developing Splash , a new coworking space downtown San Marcos with her partner Sean Garretson of Pegasus Planning and Development.

Carina has collaborated with leading minds in the industry to create a state-of-the-art incubator on the city's square. She'll share how the vision came about, the challenges they've faced remodeling a historical building, from the ground floor to the rooftop, and her vast network of contacts supporting this small town's shift to the metro's newest collaborator for entrepreneurs and start-ups.

The June meeting will be Wednesday, Jun 10, 2015, at 10:00 am in Lynn's conference room. Lynn's office is at 1107 S. 8th. St., Austin, TX, 78704. See you in the conference room.

Many thanks to Lynn for hosting our meeting.

Looking forward to Carina's presentation!

Here are some recent pics of the changing face of San Marcos, TX, including a recent developer's walking tour, sponsored by the Main Street program of the City of San Marcos.


Carina Boston Pinales, founder and lead consultant for I.O. Infinite Opportunities, provided, for those in attendance, a great presentation on the evolution of the Splash Co-Work space, the entrepreneurial future of San Marcos as a destination city in the corridor between Austin and San Antonio, plus reasons this model will address the future work force's office space needs and ability to network as mobile employees and job creators, at the local level. The official launch for Splash is sometime this Fall 2015. Carina indicated she'll invite the group to tour the new facility, at a future date >


Gibby did a great job setting up the camera and mics for her presentation and lively Q&A. Thanks, Gibby and Lynn for making the venue and recording possible for those not in attendance, who will be able to watch the presentation at a later date!

A big welcome to all who attended for the first time. I had the pleasure to meet Ravi Katta of Orb IT People, at the conclusion of the meeting. I goofed and didn't have a Sign-In sheet to pass around. So, please forgive me for not recognizing anyone else who may have joined us for the first time. We appreciate you coming out, along with those who have attended prior Central Austin Real Estate Meetup gatherings. 

JULY 8, 2015 - Set this date on your calendar for our next meeting! Same Time. Same Place. Our own Lynn Currie and Scott Sutherland will address the ins-and-outs of Sponsoring Real Estate Deals for Syndicated Funds (or) Passive Investor Groups
