GroundUP Houston Meetup

We've got something big planned for our October meetup. Join us at Buffalo Bayou Brewing Company for our first evening mixer. Houston's most innovative craft beer will be served, courtesy of Light Art Interactive and Bouncing Pixel.

Light Art Interactive is the creator of the Sebbo, a rechargeable and programmable LED wristband described as pure light candy. The Sebbo KICKSTARTER campaign began on October 2 and is off to a great start. Support a Houston start-up!

Everyone is also invited to the Startup Community Roundtable, a session about local funding options for your startup. This is for our community, so YOU ask the questions. The discussion may include changes to the finance community, whether you should apply to an accelerator program, how to seek angel funding, ways to manage a network of investors from crowdfunding, and so on.

The Startup Community Roundtable starts at 6:00 pm. GroundUP Happy Hour starts at 7:00 pm. We'll keep the brewery open and filled with great conversations and smart people until 9:00 pm. The beer is on us.


GroundUP Houston events encourage entrepreneurs and people with start-up dreams to share their experiences with like-minded individuals. Houston has a rich history of people who have taken their ideas and grown them into successful businesses from the ground up. These are the types of people we hope to attract to our mixers. GroundUP Houston was started by Bouncing Pixel in late 2010 and has almost 1,000 members.

    Hey everyone I had a great time last night hope you all enjoyed the delicious brews. Thanks for letting me share my Sebbo project with you! If you think it's cool please take a moment to visit the project page on Kickstarter @ and help me spread the word! Surely someone you know would dig this little ball of light candy :)

    Darnit, I wanted to make this but forgot that I have "Under the Blue Trees" that evening. (

    If any of you have time before GroundUP, I highly recommend stopping by the Rice Alliance Speaker Series on Thursday and seeing Houston's most successful (and often forgotten) tech entrepreneur -- Rod Canion of Compaq -- talk, as he launches his new book "OPEN":
