Have you heard about Joshua Baer?
Born in Nashua, NH  on 25 th December 1975 ,Joshua Baer is a hugely polpular Figure in Austin, Texas. Joshua spend all day worrying about email so that you don't have to. He was also the Founder of OtherInbox,which was acquired by Return Path in 2011.
He had founded or invested in a dozen email startups and you can find his mark on about half of the email messages in your Inbox.

He help people quit their jobs and become entrepreneurs.He brought together 20 others to form the Capital Factory early stage accelerator to mentor and invest in tech startups. He founded His first startup in 1996 in His college dormitory and now teach a class at the University of Texas for student entrepreneurs.

He received Computer Science and Information Decision Systems degrees from Carnegie Mellon University and live in Austin, TX with His wife and three children.


His company Capital Factory will be a larger enterprise that offers working space for startups, mentorship programs and educational programs. It also is expected to become a networking site for Austin tech entrepreneurs.

Joshua Baer and several fellow entrepreneurs have put about $500,000 into the project. Other investors in the project include Ross Buhrdorf, chief technology officer of HomeAway Inc., and entrepreneurs Andrew Busey, Bill Boebel and Dan Graham. The chamber is supporting the effort by helping to recruit new businesses and corporate supporters. The chamber's part of the program is part of its initiative Austin TechLive, started 18 months ago to support more technology startups in Austin's downtown.

Capital Factory and the chamber completed their partnership agreement a little more than a month ago, Joshua Baer said. Another player in the project is New York-based General Assembly, which operates tech startup centers in Manhattan and London. General Assembly will support the center's educational programs.

The idea is to create a community of technology entrepreneurs, some of whom will work at the center and others who will attend the wide range of classes, seminars and networking events expected to be conducted there.

For startups, membership fees will vary. Memberships will start at $150 a month for unassigned seating in the center's open work areas. Higher cost memberships run $750 a month, which includes dedicated desk space.

Baer expects the startup center will become self-supporting through membership fees.
