Getting Started

GSMP firmly believes in supporting the development of small businesses, start-ups and entrepreneurs in the Texas Innovation Corridor. Success in the small business world requires an ecosystem that allows entrepreneurs to grow and succeed by providing access to needed resources and connections.

As such, we have prepared a regional resource guide in an effort to help entrepreneurs better understand their environment, the resources at their disposal, and the actions that could increase the likelihood of their success.
