BUT AT BCIC WE'RE TRYING TO CHANGE THAT.

StartUp Texas is a Brownsville Community Improvement Corporation (BCIC) sponsored seed fund that invests in Texas-based seed and early stage companies. Qualified Candidates will have a chance to compete for $25,000 through our Innovation Pitch Summit, and up to $40,000 through our Demo Day events as part of our Accelerator program hosted inside the eBridge Center .


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.
