How it works

Our team is constantly scouting tech startups. Every 3 months we open up the application process to those on our radar, and any tech startup who wants to apply. We interview our finalists and select a small handful whose vision, product, team, and corporate culture are aligned with ours. The next 3 months are dedicated to working one-on-one with each startup to identify a technology-specific strategy designed to accelerate our
outcomes. This includes full access to our mentor network, coworking space at our Houston studio, and a range of free or discounted essential services—such as web hosting, legal advice, banking solutions, and more.

Our mentor network?

Instead of just providing capital, we provide the essential insights and proven strategies required to thrive! Our mentor network may not include any Shark Tank sharks, but it is full of renowned tech experts. We prioritize matching you with a team that is best suited to optimize your outcomes. Whether you need assistance with innovation, market research, sourcing products, production, business strategies, systems and operations, or a specialty tech skill set—we have the resources required to fast-track your innovation!
