The Story

The University of Houston announced a groundbreaking new partnership with the Houston Angel Network and Houston Exponential that will create investment and mentorship opportunities for UH alumni who want to be a part of the University’s booming innovation community.

The partnership, which unites a leading academic institution, a strong regional innovation organization and one of the nation’s top angel groups, will not only help activate accredited, early-stage investors and capital, but provide an accelerated pathway for UH alumni and the broader community to learn about and engage with startup businesses as well.

“We are excited to partner with Houston Angel Network and Houston Exponential to continue growing what is already one of the region’s strongest startup communities,” said Ramanan Krishnamoorti, vice president for energy and innovation at UH. “Investors play a vital role in the startup ecosystem and this initiative gives our alumni a rapid path to becoming angels. Our vision is to activate more investors with deep connections to UH who support world-class innovation in our community and beyond.”
