The time for radical innovation is now!

Start@ETS is a pitch competition that brings together utilities, cities, investors, and innovators to solve real-world problems. Our goal is to elevate bold problem-solvers and their solutions to affect revolutionary change when our world needs it most.

Together with lead sponsor CPS Energy, the October 2019 event in San Antonio at the historic St. Anthony Hotel will address the most pressing issues facing the utilities and cities.

In addition to featuring the pitch competition, there will also be engaging panels, great networking, and much more.

Start@ETS demonstrates new solutions and companies that can solve real-world problems. Emerging startups, academic groups, R&D labs, small groups, and teams are welcome to pitch proposals.
