September 30 marked an exciting day for Advent GX (AGX) as its president and CEO, Jose Quintana, was invited to appear on Mindless Millennials, a free-flow conversational podcast hosted by Texas A&M’s Bailey Mullins, which revolves around the life experiences of its guests.

Focusing on innovative programs to propel community and economic development, Mr. Quintana  discussed the myriad of programs and projects in the Bryan/College Station area that have established the historic downtown into an area of experimental economics, as well as his take on technology and business practices in the modern market.

The projects that Advent GX has been spearheading in the Bryan/College Station area are dedicated to preserving an authentic Bryan cultural experience while also developing the economic climate. Among these projects are the Grand Stafford Theater, the SEAD Gallery, the Distributed Urban Farming Initiative, and the Ice House on Main, which is currently at the center of many upcoming AGX developments that could mean big things for the downtown scene in the near future, including a coffee shop, microbrewery, and a farm-to-table restaurant featuring the culinary talent of Ronan Cooking, LLC.

Mr. Quintana’s invitation to appear on this podcast offered a unique opportunity for Advent GX to share these messages, as well as AGX’s mission, initiatives, and experiences over a more modern medium. For this, we would like to offer special thanks to Bailey Mullins for bringing Jose on the air to speak about our community and economic development programs.
