We strive to help courageous entrepreneurs, creative business founders, high-growth startups and savvy investors star in their own success stories. The StartUp Texas Accelerator is a highly competitive, intensive 8-12 week program designed to help companies effectively scale, properly evaluate market research, fine tune financial projections, all while creating valuable connections with local business leaders and fellow founders in the community. We have three cohorts each year: Quality of Life Ventures, SBIR/STTR Innovation Competition, and Emerging Industries.
Our Accelerator program culminates in a public Demo Day event where each startup will pitch their company to the community and judging panel of industry experts, venture capitalists, and high profile media for a chance to win $40,000 in seed funding.
