Shaping: ATX

TELLING THE STORIES OF  THE BOLD INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE SHAPING AND INFLUENCING THE CULTURE OF AUSTIN. 

BOLD. DARING. INFLUENTIAL

Great men and women, like great cities, are not born.  On the contrary, they are forged in the flames of trial and error.  Built upon a strong foundation of purpose and grit, they dare to raise themselves to great heights, to stand triumphant over adversity and critics alike. 

Great men and women, like great cities, begin with dreams and end up inspiring them.  

And like great cities, they all have a story to tell.

BEN DOHERTY & ZAC MAURAIS

Austinites Ben Doherty and Zac Maurais built an on-demand delivery app from scratch. They started with two things, a great idea and a "Coding for Dummies" book. Now you can get anything delivered in Austin from food trailers and local restaurants to grocery items just by using the mobile app Favor. 

Two young guns with a big idea have turned their on-demand delivery app Favor into a booming business in Austin. Favor's drivers aren't just delivery drivers; they're personal assistants with the details at your fingertips.
