Forbes: Houston Technology Center 'changing the world'
The Houston Technology Center was put on the short list of technology incubators "changing the world" by Forbes.
The magazine wrote that "HTC is focused on two critical areas: Energy and nanotechnology. In the last decade HTC has spawned 1,000 entrepreneurs who have raised $1 billion in funding. (Just last year HTC companies snared $125 million.) The center works with 60 companies at a time. Successful grads include NanoRidge Materials, which makes carbon nanotubes to make metal alloys 10 times stronger than steel, and Hydro Green Energy, which produces hydro-electricity using the energy generated not by a dam but by the natural flow of a river or stream."
