Why IN McKinney?
McKinney: voted the #1 place to live in Money Magazine 2014!
Most of all the people that make up WERX are residents of McKinney and it's no secret why. McKinney is a great place to live with a great sense of community and pride! This is why we all feel so strongly about creating a business center that serves the community.
WHY THE WERX?
We understand that start-ups are often boot-strapping it until revenue or funding is obtained and it is our goal and vision to help with the overhead during this phase of starting a company, by offering extremely affordable rates to meet everyone's budget. In addition, The WERX is committed to providing education and mentoring to assist as well, through relationships, presentations and events. The McKinney EDC and it's Emerging Technology Program has been instrumental in the success and initiative of the WERX center.
The WERX in McKinney was formerly known at the Collide Center, and even though the name has changed a lot of the same great people and programs are present. Come and check us out and see 'What's in the Werx!'
