The Accelerator and Prototyping Lab are supported by Microsoft, Intel, Station Houston, TX/RX, a nonprofit makerspace, and the City of Houston.
Startups in the first cohort leverage this support, as they tackle Houston’s transportation, resiliency, and other needs, such as flow of information, data analysis and engagement, infrastructure, prototyping and develop their solutions.
The Ion Smart & Resilient Cities Accelerator and Prototyping Lab draws its strength from Houston’s imaginative, innovative, and inspirational ecosystem; complementing the Mayor’s efforts to connect ideas, people, and communities and making our ecosystem even more robust.
Closing the Digital Gap Call to Action: The Ion Smart and Resilient Cities Accelerator has launched a call to action for distance learning and online education-related technologies, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal is to source as many applicable startups as we can, provide them with support, a community, and introductions to decision-makers in Houston who are solving these challenges.
