The VC Immersions program was launched in 2020 to address the systemic barriers in access to capital for startups in Houston. We found it imperative to build a platform that flips the status quo of the industry.
VC Immersions brings top tier VCs into direct contact with the Houston innovation ecosystem through pairings with relevant and investable startups. These curated visits introduce outside investors to local tech entrepreneurs in their investment criteria, as well as LPs, high net-worth individuals, and ecosystem partners.
This program was piloted for 8 months in 2020 and the results so far have been promising:

As with our others, the investors participating are excited to see what Houston has to offer and build authentic relationships with founders who currently, or in the future, fit their investment thesis.
Our friends at Republic and the participating VCs will manually review all the deals and will let you know if your company has been approved.
All application decisions will be made by October 13th, and we will inform you by the 15th.
You’re welcome to apply to each cohort, but you don’t need to apply more than once per cohort.
