Life Sciences

As the largest technology business incubator and accelerator in Texas, HTC advances the commercialization of emerging technology companies in the Houston area.  

HTC's Life Sciences Incubation and Acceleration programs are a catalyst for early stage life sciences technology companies, guiding them on the path to market. Client companies are connected to resources that counsel them on debt management, non-dilutive financing alternatives, regulatory, manufacturing, and pre-clinical/clinical trials. We guide our clients and educate the local, private, and government investors about the unique funding needs of life sciences companies, which are typically larger in scale and longer-term than those of other sectors.

HTC provides assistance to development-stage companies focused on:

  • AgBio
  • Bioinformatics
  • Biotechnology
  • Biotherapeutic
  • Biopharmatherapeutic
  • Biopolymer
  • Industrial Bio
  • IT Healthcare
  • Medical Device
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Research/Diagnostic Platform Technology

We welcome the opportunity to work with you to help your company become successful and meet its business goals.  For additional information on becoming an Acceleration Client please attend an upcoming orientation session.  These sessions are required for all Acceleration Clients.
