The Conference to Promote a Better Flow of Capital into the Houston Innovation Ecosystem

December 4, 2018

The HX Capital Summit is a forum to convene investors, entrepreneurs and other ecosystem stakeholders on a critical topic – attracting capital to fund high growth, high impact companies in Houston. This event is an opportunity to celebrate positive momentum and to continue to work on addressing our gaps in funding start-ups, so that Houston can benefit from the tremendous economic impact of their growth and eventual exits.
