STATION : HOUSTON'S HUB FOR INNOVATION

Station brings together entrepreneurs, startup companies, funding and service providers, enterprise clients and innovation advocates to foster community, create high-tech density, and grow an ecosystem where people with great ideas can build and launch companies that change the world.

COMMUNITY

Community comes first at Station. Built by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs, we know the importance of supporting peers, friends, allies and networks -- we're deeply passionate about it, in fact -- and we aim to empower you by connecting you with each other and with the broader tech and startup community.

startup support

Studies show that startups succeed most if they have access to experienced mentors, diverse talent and leadership, practical education, and an active network. At Station, you get all this and more: Expert mentors and service providers, an experienced and knowledgeable team, insightful programs, and a proactive work environment that fosters serendipity and collaborative collisions.

WORKSPACE

Station offers a vibrant workspace with dedicated or shared desks in an open plan, private offices, and bookable conference/meeting rooms.

EVENTS

We host a variety of social and educational events, from Lunch & Learns to Fireside Chats, and community meetups to full hackathons.

GUIDANCE

Station Mentors and our in-house team offer office hours and workshops to provide expert advice and impact-driven introductions.

RESOURCES

We are passionate about helping you succeed: If we come across any resources that you may benefit from, we'll happily share them!

from OUR MEMBERS & MENTORS ...

"Station is a great bridge for the Mercury team to meet Houston-based entrepreneurs and learn about their startups. We often meet entrepreneurs that need mentorship and support, but unfortunately aren’t able to help them because we have to focus on our existing investments. Now, we can refer these companies to Station where they can tap into an entire ecosystem, learn from each other, and progress and position themselves for Seed funding and Series A capital."

Blair Garrou
Managing Director, Mercury Fund

“There is no real recipe for a successful startup, but there are some basics you need to go through that give you a better chance at becoming successful one day. 
This is what you get at Station: You learn what NEEDS to be done to create a healthy foundation for your success.”

Diane Jooris
Co-Founder + CEO, OnComfort

“I've been investing in startups for four years now and I'm excited about what Station is doing for Houston -- bringing together and being a 'router' for our brightest people and best organizations. One of Houston's greatest challenges is that people are spread out and don't know one another. I see Station helping to solve this at scale: At Station, I've met some incredible people and companies.”
