As an extension of the Houston-based Rice Alliance for Technology & Entrepreneurship, the Rice Alliance – Austin Chapter inherently supports the purpose of this accomplished organization. But Austin is a different community than Houston, and this chapter has defined a mission reflective of our market and our opportunity.

To improve the entrepreneurial ecosystem of central Texas by:

  • Helping entrepreneurs successfully found, fund, grow, and exit new companies
  • Helping investors successfully identify and engage with promising new ventures and technologies
  • Showcasing emerging technologies and business models to further educate and engage our community.
