    Description:

    Founded 1985, the Entrepreneurial Development Center is Houston's first and Texas' oldest business incubator, and the second oldest private sector business incubator in the United States. The EDC pioneered business development and entrepreneurial education programs to accelerate business growth for entrepreneurs in emerging businesses without using public funding. The EDC provides the resources, methodology and environment to accelerate business growth of client entrepreneurs and receives a modest 5% royalty fee based on the success of the venture. The Center has a modest seed fund and has been involved in virtually every type of funding option.
