Webinar — Entrepreneurship and the Energy Transition Part II: The Houston Ecosystem

Webinar — Entrepreneurship and the Energy Transition Part II: The Houston Ecosystem

In the transition to a lower-carbon world, no city in the United States stands to gain or lose more than Houston, with entrepreneurial businesses and start-up technologies playing critical roles. Yet even with its history as a business-friendly city, Houston faces challenges as a hub for energy entrepreneurship. This webinar, the second of a two-part series, brings together key leaders of the energy entrepreneurship ecosystem in Houston to discuss these challenges and explore how entrepreneur-driven innovation can help the city maintain its preeminence as the energy capital of the world. The panel’s focus on Houston builds on Part I of the series, which explored national perspectives on the business and policy considerations affecting energy entrepreneurship.

This webinar was co-sponsored by the Baker Institute McNair Center for Entrepreneurship and Economic Growth and Center for Energy Studies. Follow @BakerMcNair and @CES_Baker_Inst on Twitter and join the conversation with #BakerEntrepreneur.
