About our Industry Tracks
As a leader in startup and corporate collaboration, MassChallenge Texas will introduce three new industry tracks to advance innovation across Safety & Security, Space Tech, and Sports Commercialization.
Safety & Security (Austin)
The defense industry needs to constantly innovate to stay ahead of foreign adversaries and to prioritize the safety and security of American citizens at home and abroad. The Safety & Security track is positioned to connect our partners with startups who are creating the next generation of defense technologies across artificial intelligence, battery solutions, communications, cybersecurity, data analytics, drones, machine learning, surveillance, sensors, and wearables.
As our scientific and strategic knowledge of space rapidly evolves, leaders from the space industry must stay current on the full spectrum of trends and sectors that make up the future of space. The Space Commercialization track connects these leaders with the startups ushering in the next era of space innovation by developing technologies across human health, performance, and recovery, materials science, analytics, advanced manufacturing, robotics, and relevant technologies with an application in space.
Professional and big sports brands are continually faced with new challenges in today’s consumer-facing world. With many new technologies focused on engagement and performance, it can be hard to prioritize the innovations that are right for their business. The Sports Tech track is a pathway to identify new technologies that align brands with their customer’s future by connecting partners with the startups creating leading-edge solutions including, but not limited to, human health, performance and recovery, material science, analytics, and fan experience and engagement.
