Thank you for your interest in StartUp Texas, a seed fund program sponsored by the Brownsville Community Improvement Corporation (BCIC). We at BCIC believe that right now, everyone can be the founder of something great. The BCIC understands how entrepreneurship stimulates job growth, creates new opportunities in industries that need them, and makes communities better versions of themselves.
While there is no clear path to entrepreneurship, the BCIC are trying to change that. Our goal is provide all the tools that burgeoning, local entrepreneurs need to succeed.
The StartUp Texas Program invests in Texas-based seed and early stage companies. The Grant supports the development of entrepreneurial companies in Texas, stimulates private investment in these companies, and spurs economic growth. We intend to continue the entrepreneurial spirit that founded our City by promoting the creation or scalability of innovative businesses in Texas.
