A conversation between Trust Center Entrepreneur-in-Residence Ben Soltoff and four students from Houston who are participants in our new TEX-E Program.
TEX-E stands for Texas Entrepreneurship Exchange for Energy. It’s a first-of-a-kind collaboration between Greentown Labs, MIT’s Martin Trust Center, and four Texas universities: Texas A&M, UT-Austin, University of Houston, and Rice University.
The objective is to create a powerful, student-driven entrepreneurship ecosystem in Houston, focused on energy innovation and implementing lessons learned from building a successful ecosystem in Boston. This effort will aim to train and empower the next generation of entrepreneurs to lead the energy transition and to share in the massive economic opportunity it entails, while also addressing the existential threat of climate change.
