Guide to Small Business in Houston

Title small.png

Our new Guide to Small Business in Houston analyzes and categorizes the resources available to small business owners in Houston. We provide details on how to incorporate and license a small business, as well as details on to get help from more than 38 useful support organizations.

Houston's small business support organizations provide education, development, incubation, networking, and much else besides. Each of Houston's organizations is accompanied by a description of its program's details. Likewise, tables comparing organizations on their services and costs, as well as interactive maps, help entrepreneurs understand which service is best suited to their small business.

Guide to Entrepreneurship at Rice University

Rice Resources.png

Our new Guide to Entrepreneurship at Rice University provides an overview of resources available for emerging entrepreneurs of the Rice University community, including students, faculty, and alumni. Rice University is known for its entrepreneurial activity. The Rice Business Plan Competition has the largest prize of any university competition of its kind, and the Rice Alliance was ranked the No.1 University Business Incubator in the world in 2013 and 2014.

We provide information on all of the key campus-wide institutions and programs provided, as well as details on events and resources available through these institutions. The five main institutions supporting entrepreneurship across campus are the Rice Entrepreneurship Initiative, the McNair Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, the Rice Alliance for Technology and Entrepreneurship, OwlSpark, and the Rice Entrepreneurship Club. Together, these institutions maintain a public Slack channel that anyone may join that shares events and opportunities related to entrepreneurship at Rice University and in the Houston area.

McNair Center Projects

McNair Projects were a deliverable-based effort, undertaken by small groups of research or tech team members at the McNair Center. Projects ranged from codifying institutional knowledge into wiki pages to full reports that contain policy recommendations, and from creating tools (see Software Repository Listing) or datasets to building components of academic papers. A List of All McNair Projects contains projects that are not active, tabled, completed, or subsumed. See also Project Planning for Fall 2017 or Projects Under Review at the McNair Center.
