Houston has long been known as the energy capital of the world. However, to lead the world’s energy transition, the city must continue to attract and retain talent by creating a strong, vibrant innovation ecosystem to support the next generation of entrepreneurs and companies. The core elements necessary to build this ecosystem are already in place. Texas universities attract a rich and enormous pool of talent, and they have deep and long-standing connections to the energy industry that must ultimately bring new innovations to scale.
Over the past 15 years, Boston—home to Greentown’s first incubator—has emerged as a leader in innovation-driven energy entrepreneurship. Institutions including the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship, the driving force of MIT’s entrepreneurial education curriculum, and Greentown Labs, North America’s largest climate tech incubator, have a proven track record of launching and scaling climatetech startups, despite the unique challenges of the space.
