The Ion is a nucleus for innovation in Houston, fostering a community and culture where entrepreneurs and corporations come together to solve some of the world’s greatest problems.
This 270,000-square foot structure is designed to bring Houston’s entrepreneurial, corporate and academic communities together into collaborative spaces and programs.
The former Sears Building will support businesses at all stages of the innovation lifecycle and provide resources for Houstonians seeking to participate in the innovation economy as a part of the South Main Innovation District.
While we all try and adjust to this new way of life, The Ion will continue to be a resource to our entrepreneurial community the best way we know how, by connecting our community and providing you with opportunities that you need to be resilient during these unstable times. Houstonians are resilient and we will get through this as we do with every other challenge that comes our way. I want to thank each and every one of you for continuing to help one another and your continued support of The Ion! We hope this page serves you well and we promise to keep you all up to date on everything innovation taking place in our community!
Gaby Rowe, Executive Director of The Ion
