The overall objective of the HTC Client Acceleration Program is to aid our clients in formulating a compelling business proposition in order to prepare them to generate revenue or raise capital. HTC Clients work with an Acceleration Director who guides them in developing and executing their business strategy to achieve their individual goals. HTC provides introductions to advisors, funders, and customers through networking opportunities and events. HTC Clients graduate with sustainable revenues, a credible team, a validated product and a compelling story. Each company is treated individually according to their position in the Acceleration Pathway and their unique needs. HTC facilitates the acceleration of companies in five vital components that we recognize as imperative in their maturity: Team, Market, Product, Finance and Infrastructure. The Acceleration Pathway is a general overview of the progression that most clients undertake to achieve success. Since its inception in 1999, HTC has assisted its Clients and Graduates in raising $1 billion and creating thousands of jobs. In 2010 alone, HTC's Clients and Graduates contributed $515.5 million to the Houston economy. Learn more about HTC's economic impact.
