We Invest in Texas StartUps

Our goal is to foster scalable business in our region and provide entrepreneurs in our community the chance to access capital and commercialize their products or services. Brownsville was founded by entrepreneurs, and we wish to continue and foster the same spirit in our community.

On the Border by the Sea, and Beyond

We partner with innovators, dreamers, and those who are reimagining the largest industries in order to bring their visions to life. We work with and incubate, entrepreneurs who and rethinking previous assumptions about how companies and the systems around them behave. We support our incubators by proactively creating new industry ecosystems that include government leaders, academics, entrepreneurs and other industry leaders in order to make change happen faster.

At 36,000 square feet, the eBridge Center for Business & Commercialization is the flagship facility for a wide range of early-stage companies. The eBridge Center was created in collaboration with the City of Brownsville, UTRGV, the Lower Rio Grande Valley Economic Development Council, and the U.S. EDA, to support the economic development of South Texas with a focus on scalable businesses.

We invite entrepreneurs and startups to work on new ventures without long-term space commitments. New ideas are also developed with support from the Texas Manufacturing Assistance Center (TMAC) through the University of Texas – Rio Grande Valley, one of many local higher education institutions that contribute to the area’s growing workforce.
