Member Spotlight – Chris & Lindsey Castillo

Coworking spaces have become the new workspace solution for businesses of all sizes in cities around the world. They offer amenities that are attractive to members and most importantly, they offer flexibility for businesses that may need additional space as they grow without the worry of long-term commitments. At Venture X, we have found that our coworking spaces have been the perfect solution for the needs of businesses in many industries including real estate, marketing, finance, and photography. Startups, entrepreneurs, small- and medium-sized businesses as well as many freelancers have found that coworking also helps them network with others and partnerships can grow from these communities. Chris and Lindsey Castillo own and operate Castillo & Co., a commercial and residential construction contracting firm. Membership at Venture X Harlingen in Harlingen, TX has been the perfect fit for Chris and Lindsey.

A Personal Look at Chris & Lindsey Castillo

Chris and Lindsey shared that Castillo & Co. is a faith-driven company. They elaborated saying that "Biblical principles inspire our strategic planning." It's not all work for them though; they are both certified PADI freedivers and spearfishermen that also enjoy spending time on their boat exploring the Laguna Madre. And they shared that they love food, "Our travel plans usually consist of finding the best places to eat in any given city. We are always on the lookout for local suggestions!" Chris and Lindsey really embody the kind of people you will find at Venture X – hard working people who know the importance of stepping outside the office and enjoying other interests as well.
