Houston has long been known for its close ties to the space program and is a technology hub for entrepreneurs working within this sector.  Consequently, HTC has established a relationship with the Johnson Space Center (JSC) to harness the technical know-how and provide assistance to technology start-ups and entrepreneurs working within this sector or those individuals who have had past or current affiliation with JSC. HTC also assists NASA with transfer of patented technologies developed for the space program and available for licensing by private companies for use and commercialization on earth.

HTC’s Acceleration Programs take technology startups from early stage to maturity, focusing on financial and business success.  Our relationships with Bay Area Houston Economic Partnership (BAHEP) and the Space Alliance Technology Outreach Program (SATOP) provides our client companies with additional business guidance and mentorship, introductions to partners, professional services, potential customers, and exposure to investors.

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