Startup Day Houston Breakfast

Celebrating Startup Day Across America, Station Houston welcomes Mayor Sylvester Turner and startup leaders — and YOU! — for the inaugural Startup Day Houston breakfast on August 1.

Startup Day Houston offers local entrepreneurs, corporate innovators, and representatives from the startup ecosystem an opportunity to educate their elected officials about the challenges they face and discuss how government policy can support efforts to test new ideas and business models, create new products, and spur local innovation.

The event features a “State of Station” update from Co-founder and CEO John Reale, remarks from Mayor Sylvester Turner, and a panel discussion moderated by Mercury Fund Managing Director Blair Garrou around the recent progress and growth of Houston’s innovation ecosystem.

Breakfast will be provided.
