The first idea that turned Robert Young into an entrepreneur grew from the frustration of working in a captive embroidery digitizing house.
At Radio Cap Co., now the San Antonio-based subsidiary of Norwood Promotional Products Inc., Young was head of the digitizing department in the 1990s. All their work was done for one company, and Young saw the department had capacity to contract with other firms.
That suggestion was ignored, but Young wouldn’t let it go. In 2001, he left RCC to start his own digitizing house, Volant Technologies.
Five years later and flush with customers, Young jumped on his second idea. Rather than just providing digitized computer programs for embroidery shops, why not make fine art?
“After 18 years in the business, I got bored with just doing corporate and sports logos,” Young said.
And Volant Embroidered Art Studio at 315 E. Commerce St. was born. The gallery, in operation less than two years, caters to conventioneers and tourists. But Young has been pursuing interior designers in hopes that these unique art pieces will be added to the repertoire of home decorating items in affluent homes.
