StartHereNow was founded in 2017 by Alison Lami Sawyer and Roy Johnston. 

Our mission is to create a collaborative environment where women can bring to life ideas that they are passionate about and build companies that solve big problems.

StartHereNow is a start-up weekend for women. Part incubator, part pitch-day, brainstorming session, and hackathon, we help entrepreneurs Start their business. Here. Now.

We grew out of the SheHacksHTX startup weekend, held in 2016 with the support (and inspiration of) the fantastic Monarq team.
