Sign up now to attend the first-ever MassChallenge Texas Awards Ceremony at 5:00 pm on Wednesday, August 15 at the Hyatt Regency (208 Barton Springs, 78704).

The MassChallenge Awards Ceremonies are the grand finale of each MassChallenge accelerator program. This is when the top startups from each cohort are recognized by community leaders to a room full of potential investors and customers, MassChallenge mentors, VIP community leaders, and loved ones. This event is the flagship experience of the accelerator program and is when the equity free grants are awarded.

At this August 15 event, MassChallenge Texas will award up to $500,000 in equity-free cash prizes to the top startups from the accelerator program as selected by the community.

Keynotes at the event will be given by Cristal Glangchai (CEO/Founder of VentureLab and author of Venture Girls), and Julia Cheek (CEO/Founder of EverlyWell).
