About Us

The Texas Foundation for Innovative Communities is a non-profit focused on maximizing regional competitiveness through the architecture and implementation of robust innovation ecosystems.   TFIC’s initiatives are designed to be replicable across all of Texas’ strategic industries.  The next slides list our three flagship projects.

Expanding Innovative Capacity

TFIC is developing a statewide platform to match national “best practices” in the competition for new, high-impact research missions.  Prior demonstration projects increased Texas share of SBIR/STTR funding more than one-third in 18 months.  Longer-term efforts seek to double Texas’ federal research funds in real terms within the next decade.
