Our Values

Local Partnerships

At CUBIO, we are committed to growing and developing in the local startup ecosystem in Houston. We believe this can be accomplished by building strong communities and partnerships with fellow startup development organizations (SDOs), universities, and businesses. By the strength of these local networks, we hope to provide our startups with the support they need to succeed.

Startup Investment

It is within startups that we find so much innovation, creativity, and a genuine desire to improve the lives of others. We want to help them grow into their best selves, to reach the apex of their potential. We offer two paths for growth: local and international. For local startups, we can equip them with the means to succeed through our accelerator utilizing components of Headway Idea Lab’s 5 Steps. Once startups are ready for international expansion, we can connect them with our network of businesses, manufacturers, and investors abroad as well as proving funds to those startups that meet investors’ criteria.

Technology Collaboration

At CUBIO, we hope to be at the forefront of technology, of innovators collaborating and expanding. We have verified investors and manufacturers to partner with our startups. Through our partnerships, we create a network with a variety of resources. For those healthcare startups ready for the next step, we will have CUBIO-verified manufacturers and investors abroad to help realize their ambitions.

Cross-border Community

In the spirit of improving and strengthening business relations between the US and China, CUBIO would like to support the development of Chinese companies and organizations in Houston. We can provide them access to our network of partners and our program for growth strategies.

CUBIO is conveniently located within the Houston Medical Center. It is across the street from NRG stadium and the Woman’s Hospital of Texas, near the Stadium Park/Astrodome METRO line stop
