Why I’m Here
My goal with Ideation Station and Collaboration Station community projects including, but not limited to, Sherman Off the Square (ShOT) Project, Gallery Off the Square in Ideation Station and Gallery Off the Square Patreon, Poetry Jams, 1 Million Cups Sherman (1MCShermanTX), and Women of Visionary Influence (WOVI), is to engage people and amplify their voice and visibility within the region at large.
For example, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation developed 1 Million Cups in 2012 based on the notion that entrepreneurs discover solutions and engage with their communities over a million cups of coffee. It is a free program designed to educate, engage and inspire entrepreneurs around the country. Through the power of volunteers, 1 Million Cups has grown to more than 180 communities.

Ideation Station LLC is a for profit social purpose organization that promotes economic opportunity, increasing the flow of capital and job creation for people, startups, and small businesses, using the coworking community center business model. Our mission is to advocate for the cultural arts as economic drivers and to accelerate the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Texoma. The “shared economy”, in this sense is our developing a “cooperative” that depends on member support. Ed and I, as Ideation Station LLC, then can leverage the assets and resources from members and supporters to give a starting place for people to create. Our members can create a new income stream for themselves by starting a side gig or new business. Our members can experience creativity, writing, and entrepreneurship programs and networking groups that will spark members and participants own creativity to overcome writer’s block, see their art in a new way or to sell it to new audiences. Our members can work on site in a collaborative environment that helps them flourish.

As we develop these programs with members, non-profits, businesses and other entities, we will also be producing and distributing our own work, as well as that of our members. Artists, writers, creatives and those whose work we help produce and distribute will always keep the copyright and intellectual property rights of what they produce or will share it with their collaborators.
