Holding the title as the fourth largest city in the country based on population and covering a sprawling 669 square miles, the city of Houston could surround New York City, Washington D.C., Boston, San Francisco, Seattle, Minneapolis, and Miami combined. With so much space and resources to work with, there’s no question how businesses and organizations with worldwide influence reside there. Houston is home to the largest medical complex in the world, contains a center for space exploration, and was named the Energy Capital of the World. All of this and more is how Houston made a name for itself and continues to stand strong as one of the great global cities. But those feats are not where Houston’s story ends. In 2014, the city took on the slogan “Houston: The City With No Limits,” broadcasting its mission to continue accelerating in all areas, including the technology industry. With Texas Medical Center’s addition of the TMC3 campus, the development of The Ion, and the number of industry experts at Accudata and across the city, tech innovations in Houston will truly have no limits!
Home to the brightest minds in medicine, Texas Medical Center (TMC) is at the forefront of advancing life sciences. TMC employs more than 106,000 medical professionals who contribute to the admirable stats of 8 million patient visits, 180,000+ surgeries, 750,000 emergency room visits, and 25,000+ babies delivered per year. TMC plans to continue the rapid innovation of medical technology in Houston with the addition of the TMC3 campus. Once completed, TMC3 will enable innovators from the healthcare, science, academia, government, industry, manufacturing, and not-for-profit sectors to collaborate on new medicines, medical devices, diagnostic and digital health platforms, and treatment solutions.
A new development in Houston with extreme promise of accelerating innovation and connecting communities is The Ion. Currently under construction in an area now deemed the Innovation District, The Ion looks to “foster a community and culture where corporate innovators, academic partners, community partners, startups, and entrepreneurs come together to solve some of the world’s greatest problems,” according to their website. In short, they’re building into a hub of ideas and corporate partners to streamline the next generation of technology right here in Houston. The Ion also serves as a meeting place for startups and people in the city to perfect their pitches, network, and advance their overall tech and business skillsets through weekly programming. With the assistance of respected names in tech, including Microsoft and Dell, transformational ideas that will benefit the world through technology can become a reality.
