Want to discover what Texas, the tenth largest economy on the planet, has to offer in the innovation landscape? Join the Texas Startups Roadshow to discover the key players in Texas who make it an innovation ecosystem that both local and out-of-state investors can’t afford to miss. The Roadshow takes guests on a virtual journey through Austin, San Antonio, Houston and Dallas, spotlighting dozens of the country’s top tech investors and innovators in each city while connecting investors with top entrepreneurial talent every stop on the way.  

Any investor, regardless of location, with their eyes on the ingenuity, creativity and talent of Texas are encouraged to attend, as are top seed-stage tech and consumer startups in Texas. All Texas Startups Roadshow participants will: 

  • Hear from entrepreneurs who have raised the biggest funding rounds;

  • Discover the super-connectors they need to know;

  • Meet with local startups who are fundraising; and

  • Make valuable connections with the country’s top tech entrepreneurs, innovators and investors.

Learn about national security missions with CACI in San Antonio, watch four finalists compete for a grand cash prize at The Ion Startup Demo Day Finals in Houston, and close out the roadshow with North Texas’ can’t-miss competition, the UT Dallas Big Idea Competition (BIC).  

This Shark Tank-style pitch competition hosted annually by UT Dallas’ Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship will take place virtually for the first time this year. Delivering BIC’s keynote on November 19 will be the one and only Mark Cuban, co-star of ABC’s “Shark Tank,” owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks and author of “How to Win at the Sport of Business.”
