FOUNDER & CEO
The Cannon, Cannon Ventures
After graduating from Rice University in 2013, Lawson joined the global VC group, KPMG Capital. However, he soon realized Houston was lacking the infrastructure and resources startups needed to thrive and decided he was going to change that. On November 5th, 2017 his idea came to fruition when we officially opened the doors of The Cannon and on May 24th 2018, Cannon Ventures. In Lawson’s free time he dabbles in poetry, serves as a little league coach, and enjoys a smooth old fashioned. If you’re looking for Lawson, it’s a safe bet he’s either in a Lyft, visiting his favorite tea shop, hanging out in The Cannon main space, or spending time with his wife Lauren and adorable dog Truman.
