The Center of Gravity for Entrepreneurs in Texas

Central Texas is home to one of the most vibrant, innovative and collaborative startup communities in the country.  This "entrepreneur ecosystem" includes co-working spaces, meetups, forums, microlenders, alternative lenders, angel investors, venture capital groups and a slew of resources for veterans, minorities, women and food manufacturers-- just to name a few.  The hardest part is knowing where to find them!  

We tried to make it as easy as possible for you to navigate this ecosystem. Below you'll find several categories of resources with brief descriptions and links to their websites. We don't officially recommend one organization over another; instead, we present the options (the ones we know about) without any sales pitches so you can do your own navigating.
