As the largest technology business incubator and accelerator in Texas, HTC advances the commercialization of emerging technology companies in the Houston area.  HTC’s Energy Incubation and Acceleration Programs take technology start-ups from early stage to maturity.  Each day, the staff and partners of the Houston Technology Center work closely with entrepreneurs and startup companies addressing their unique needs and goals by providing them with in-depth strategic and tactical business guidance, fundraising advice, and connecting them to opportunities, allies, and capital.

Energy clients represent upstream, downstream, petrochemical, conventional, and renewable energy.

We welcome the opportunity to work with you to help your company become successful and meet its commercialization goals.  For information on becoming an Incubation Client or if you have a NASA-energy related technology visit our HTC - JSC Incubation page.  For additional information on becoming an Acceleration Client please attend an upcoming orientation session.  These sessions are required for all Acceleration Clients.
