When the thought leaders at the University of Houston’s Technology Bridge set out to narrow the divide between the entrepreneurial activities at the university and the local start-up ecosystem, they first needed to map it out. Literally.

UH’s Technology Bridge launched an interactive map that serves as a tool to showcase the city’s robust innovation ecosystem – and the university’s contributions to it. This interactive, “living document” has well over 1,000 companies represented and it’s growing by the day. Feedback from the community has been overwhelmingly positive, and the TECH Map has solidified connections and promoted partnerships by showing the community, the state, and the nation what opportunities Houston holds for their fledgling companies.

Deploying such a tool in your region sounds like a daunting task, but UH’s Technology Bridge has done the extensive legwork and learned a lot of lessons along the way. This one-hour webinar will guide you through the process so you can have a visual representation of your economic ecosystem and the opportunities it presents. It’s a tool that could ultimately bring scores of valuable connections, partnerships, licensees, and jobs to your university.

Join the University of Houston team as they outline their experience, the best practices they’ve discovered, and the lessons learned along the way.

Creating and Showcasing Technology Maps as an Economic Development Tool

Here’s a quick look at the topics they’ll cover:

  • How UH Technology Bridge gathered over 1,000 (and counting) company profiles for the TECH Map
  • Who manages the map, how they do it, what the budget for the project is, and upkeep strategies
  • How the map serves as a tool to not only showcase companies, but talent, resources and funding opportunities
  • Showcasing Opportunity Zones on the Map and the progress made within them
  • How the Map showcases the university, it’s relationships to companies, and the value it adds to the community

Plus: Get your questions answered during the interactive Q&A portion of the program.
