What we're about

Houston Startup Demo Day was first launched in 2012 by START (http://www.starthouston.com/) (a co-working space in EaDo) to showcase local entrepreneurs and startups. Over the years, it has grown into a cornerstone event for the Houston Startup Community. When START closed their doors in 2017, they passed the torch to Station Houston and Demo Day sponsors Softeq (https://www.softeq.com/) and BBVA Compass (https://www.bbvacompass.com/), to ensure the tradition continued.

As the saying goes: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." We worked with START to activate their magic formula of top-tier mentors and local investors providing personalized feedback for selected startups every month -- nothing's changed but the address.

Whether you're a serial entrepreneur or just looking to get involved in the community, this event is for YOU.

Investors, Innovators and Startup Fans: Join us on the 4th Wednesday of each month to learn about -- and learn FROM -- some of the most promising startups our city has to offer.
