StartUp Texas is a Brownsville Community Improvement Corporation (BCIC) sponsored seed fund that invests in Texas-based seed and early stage companies. Qualified Candidates and Graduates of the eBridge Center will have a chance to compete for a share of $100,000 through our program.


Our goal is to foster scalable business in our region and provide entrepreneurs in our community the chance to access capital and commercialize their products or services. Brownsville was founded by entrepreneurs, and we wish to continue and foster the same spirit in our community.

THERE IS NO CLEAR PATH TO ENTREPRENEURSHIP

BUT AT BCIC WE'RE TRYING TO CHANGE THAT.
