The HX Story
Houston Exponential is a new, dynamic organization that will serve, organize, champion and grow the local innovation ecosystem. HX will accelerate the development of Houston’s innovation economy by fostering a robust ecosystem that supports high-growth, high-impact startups.
HX was created through a combination of the Greater Houston Partnership’s Innovation Roundtable, Mayor Turner’s Innovation and Technology Task Force, and the Houston Technology Center to bolster Houston’s innovation ecosystem and drive the region to become a top 10 startup ecosystem by 2022.
We will achieve this mission by convening the ecosystem, helping to build an innovation district in Houston, attracting talent to the region and promoting Houston’s image, both locally and nationally, as a vibrant, innovative economy where startups thrive.
Through the HX Venture Fund, we will generate a compelling return for investors, attract leading venture capital firms to bring their expertise and risk capital to the region, and create a key pathway for innovation and information flow between corporations, startups and innovators.
