Houston, get ready to witness an extraordinary fusion of entrepreneurial spirit and innovation as we welcome a brand new cohort of six Italian startups to our vibrant city! From August 28th to September 30th, these exceptional companies will embark on a unique acceleration program, supported by the Houston Office of the Italian Trade Agency and the Italian Space Agency (ASI). Together we will bring their cutting-edge ideas and passion for success to the heart of the Texas aerospace ecosystem.
