On November 20,2013, the TechStreet Houston Conference debuted at the George R. Brown Convention Center. A first-of-its-kind event for Houston, the conference brought together top thinkers and innovators in the tech field to spotlight some of Houston’s most promising new tech start-ups.
TechStreet Houston is the brainchild of several like-minded leaders in business, education, community, and government fields, who worked together to create a platform for Houstonians to highlight creative ideas and technologies. TechStreet’s founders believe that the country’s fourth largest city is brimming with smart, talented entrepreneurs, who lack the capital or exposure necessary to propel their ideas forward. The conference afforded these individual innovators and fledgling companies the opportunity to showcase their products in front of corporate leaders and venture capitalists who are able to provide the funding and exposure needed to catapult ideas into reality.
TechStreet Houston’s steering committee has designed a comprehensive program that highlights key trends and game changing ideas . With session foci ranging from medical technology to game and app design, to leadership and best practice discussions, the program touched on topics important to developing a well-rounded tech start-up community.
The City of Houston, represented by Mayor Pro Tem Ed Gonzalez, who is also the Conference Honorary Chair, has been highly supportive from the beginning of the conference planning process, working with community stakeholders to engage partners on the state and national level to participate. The City holds firm to the belief that events of this kind will create a more innovative and attractive city for start-ups and entrepreneurs.
