Client Company Testimonials

“First, HTC has provided great publicity for us, which has given us an advantage in sourcing talent when we have had key management positions to fill. Second, through its advisory board, HTC has provided instant access to influential business leaders in the Houston community. This networking base has led to useful introductory meetings in the past few years and also has laid a foundation for intersections of interest down the line.”

“HTC helped Tyrell tap into networks that are still paying dividends for the company. From filling out the management team, to providing critical technology resources, to completing a major funding round, HTC was there to help. We could not have asked for a better return on our investment in HTC.”

Walter Klemp, President and CEO
Client since 2003

“In addition to serving as a focal point for entrepreneurs, HTC enables us to meet talented and experienced industry executives who frequently become advisors and occasionally become customers.”

“Houston Technology Center helped Vuico ‘make the cut.’  Vuico secured an agreement as the exclusive distributor and licensor of NTT Software’s portfolio for North and South America, but in order to realize our vision of giving consumers and businesses an always-on mobile, wireless internet experience, we needed business guidance and seed funding.  HTC’s advice on how best to penetrate the market, their assistance with our presentation, and the introductions to the Houston Angel Network helped us to raise $500,000 to start building our company.”

“Everyone at HTC added tremendous value and insight. Not only did HTC help refine our business strategy, they led us to the Houston Angel Network for initial funding.  With HTC’s help, we raised $500,000 in seed funding in March 2002.  To date, we have raised over $4.3 million equity and bridge financing . Our relationship with HTC is a huge asset!”

“The concept of the HTC Client Company has had both short term and long-term benefits for Webvideolink. We are far better prepared as we seek to raise outside funding and this is directly related to our involvement with HTC. We have an improved market and sales strategy and we consistently receive support from the staff of both the Emerging Markets Group and the team supporting us within the Houston Technology Center.”

“We at Webvideolink consider the Houston Technology Center as ‘our most valuable’ partner in this business venture and as we move forward with our active sales and marketing of our products HTC continues to support us and guide us towards success!”
