MassChallenge has announced that 84 early-stage startups, including some from North Texas, will join together in Austin for its first Texas-based accelerator.

MassChallenge is a not-for-profit global network of zero-equity startup accelerators.

According to a release, the 84 startups come from a wide range of industries — agriculture, gaming, consumer, and medical devices. This year’s cohort came from more than 520 applicants from which 280 were asked to pitch MassChallenge Texas’ expert community at Strasburger & Price LLP in Austin.

“The 84 startups are primed to drive real change and create enormous impact both in their communities and around the world.”
