Celebration of Entrepreneurship

Bayou Start Up Showcase Two leading university technology accelerators will partner to host the first Bayou Startup Showcase at the Jones School August 14. The event, which is jointly hosted by Rice University's OwlSpark startup accelerator and the University of Houston's (UH) RED Labs startup accelerator, provides an opportunity for startup teams from both accelerator programs to showcase their diverse businesses to the Greater Houston community and publicly launch them. A total of 13 teams from both universities will present their companies.

The teams will have spent three months developing scalable business models for their innovative technologies through an intensive curriculum, ongoing mentorship and customer validation prior to the showcase.
