Our Vision

The Ion. Accelerating Innovation, Connecting Communities.


Our Mission

The Ion anchors, activates, and accelerates the innovation ecosystem through partnerships, pathways, and programs that create opportunities to advance and sustain resilient economic growth in Houston.

Innovation in Houston

  • Houston is home to some of the world’s most impactful innovations in the fields of energy, space, medicine, and more.
  • Yet investment in Houston’s innovation economy has lagged not only behind cities of similar size and stature, but also behind smaller cities.
  • The Ion, The District, and the city of Houston are going to change that.
