The Houston Technology Center (HTC) has just revealed the winners of its 2013 Goradia Innovation Prize. This event of recognition, in collaboration with Opportunity Houston, awards nearly $150,000 in cash during the 2013 Innovation Conference and Showcase to individual finalists and starting companies that have yet to largely commercialize their innovations in the Texas Gulf Coast region. The winners are selected based on their discovery’s commercial potential, a sound business plan, potential to contribute to local job growth, and likelihood of success in the long run.
