Houston’s largest entrepreneurial community connects with Austin-based MediaTech Ventures’ startup incubators and media platforms in conjunction with the launch of The Cannon Sports + Media

The Cannon and MediaTech Ventures have formed a strategic partnership to better serve the media industry and entrepreneurs through MediaTech Ventures’ incubators and technology.

The Cannon, which launched in 2017 to create an ecosystem to serve Houston’s entrepreneurs, has launched their 6th Houston area location - The Cannon Sports + Media as a global hub for Sports and Media Technology. Leveraging their growing community of startups, entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, advisors, and investors, The Cannon works to democratize access to the resources innovators need to succeed. This new space has been designed to build a community of innovators focused on revolutionizing sports and media, as well as anyone with the desire to build their business in a space custom designed and programmed for the sports fanatic.

"We're excited to be teaming up with MediaTech Ventures as a programming partner in The Cannon Sports + Media space,” Lawson Gow, Founder and President of The Cannon. “The intent of the space is to be a hub for all-things sports and media innovation and activity. And MediaTech will be a huge driver of this kind of community in Houston."

Started in Austin, TX, MediaTech Ventures works with cities, investors, and developed companies, in media, to fuel entrepreneurship and the rise of the creative class of the economy. Drawn from experiences throughout the United States major media hubs, from Silicon Valley to Los Angeles and New York, the company developed a proprietary model for startup incubators that leverages technology to connect the community worldwide, while leading with a curriculum teaching founders with an emphasis in media, the marketing, and the community and content development that enables founders to start a venture more likely to succeed.

“The Cannon community and property developments caught our attention immediately as a critical piece of the Texas startup ecosystem,” MediaTech Ventures’ Founder and CEO, Paul O’Brien. “Lawson’s vision of democratizing access to the physical resources that cities and entrepreneurs need fell right in line with our commitment to doing the same in education and capital development. As Texas booms as an epicenter of innovation, Houston’s amazing culture, history in technology, and impact in the arts, is unparalleled; aligning with The Cannon’s vision means even more access and resources to creators, and the introduction of The Cannon Community to our startup programs throughout the world.”

Among the most impactful platforms and ecosystems in Texas’ innovation economy, the close collaboration crosses the chasm between two of the largest and growing cities in the United States while enabling entrepreneurs and investors to access, learn from, and get connected throughout much more of what has the region in the spotlight of the world.
