Sonata @ Redlabs
Niell Gorman • 6/28/2021 • Houston, TX
The Sonata team is well underway through the University of Houston's Redlabs startup accelerator. Run in tandem with the Rice University Owlspark program, the day-to-day of the accelerator includes instructional sessions, check-ins with mentors and other founders, and preparation for pitching to investors.

We are immensly grateful to Redlabs for helping us emerge within the Houston startup community. So far our team has talked to more than a dozen mentors with a high level of business, marketing, research, and design expertise. Our current challenge is identifying potential subjects for customer interviews.

Stay tuned as we continue through the program and pitch at the 2021 Bayou Startup Showcase in early August!
Meet the team!

Sonata is the creation of three friends, all graduates of the industrial design program at the University of Houston's Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture and Design. From left to right: Niell Gorman, Kezza Mactavish, and Jesus Garcia.

Before founding Sonata, each of us gained prior experience researching and designing products to address childhood learning difficulties. Our shared interest in designing in this space led us to launch this project and successfully apply for the University of Houston's Redlabs startup accelerator. We are grateful and excited to be particpating as we prepare a pitch for the 2021 Bayou Startup Showcase in August.

Pictured is our first team meeting, held on a post-graduation trip to Colorado, at Denver's Roostercat Cafe.
