About Us

The Texas Foundation for Innovative Communities is a non-profit funded by the state of Texas to develop global competitiveness in “Clean Tech,” the world’s fastest growing industry, a $7 trillion global opportunity.   TFIC’s initiatives are designed to be replicable across all of Texas’ strategic industries.  The next slides list our three flagship projects.

Raising Innovative Capacity

TFIC is developing a statewide platform to match national “best practices” in the competition for new, high-impact research missions.  The short-term application will multiply Texas current performance in the SBIR/STTR and ARPA-e funding competitions.  Longer-term implementation will provide a multiple of Texas’ current attainment of federal research funds.
