Houston’s Startup Ecosystem

While Texas’ center of gravity for startups is in the Silicon Hills of Central Texas, the startup ecosystem in Houston has been steadily developing; aided by the strong energy and healthcare sector.  These are publications, organizations, and other resources that anyone forming a Houston Startup would be wise to familiarize themselves with.  If you have suggestions for additions, please reach out to me on twitter or make a comment.
