    CHRIS LAING, Executive Director,  Capital City Innovation

Capitalizing on the healthcare transformation already underway in Austin, community leaders have created a new non-profit entity to foster the development of an Innovation Zone on the eastern edge of downtown.

Capital City Innovation, Inc., the newly formed non-profit, will help established businesses and enterprising start-ups become part of the health ecosystem that is developing around the Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin and a new modern teaching hospital. Leaders also expect to build on creativity already occurring in the vicinity to spur innovation in sectors beyond healthcare.

Founding Members of Capital City Innovation include The University of Texas at Austin, Central Health and Seton Healthcare Family, a member of Ascension. Four other board members may be named from the community and Mayor Steve Adler and Travis County Judge Sarah Eckhardt will serve as Advisory Members.

“Capital City Innovation will ensure the whole community benefits from the research and opportunities that will originate from this hub of innovation,” said Sen. Watson, who was named chairman of the Innovation Zone Working Group in 2014 by then-Mayor Lee Leffingwell.

Only service providers who are CBA Affiliate members or who are sponsors of the luncheon are allowe to attend.   The "guest" payment option is for brokers only.
