Houston Startup Showcase



November 15, 2023
3:00 pm - 7:00 pm CST


4201 Main Street
Houston, TX 77002


Join us at Houston Startup Showcase where you will explore the companies and organizations that are leading the way to the future in Houston. Starting with an ecosystem expo from 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM, get to know startups, investors, corporations, and startup development organizations who can help you achieve your goals in our region. Then find a seat on the forum stairs from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM for a pitch competition between seed stage companies who are ready to scale! The winning pitch will be a combination of the judge’s decision and a fan vote.

But that’s not all. We’re jazzing up the night with a live podcast recording of “Forging the Future with Chris Howard” – it’s going to be epic.
