Global Acceleration
Program (GAP)

The Global Acceleration Program (GAP) is a global initiative to provide select companies who have innovative and scalable business ideas that have been validated, either through investment from private investors/governments or have sales, with the opportunity to accelerate the launch of the company in the United States. Currently, VelocityTX has signed agreements with strategic partners in Brazil- OBr, Chile- Austral Incuba, and Costa Rica-ParqueTec to identify and select the top companies from each country to come to San Antonio, Texas to be accelerated for 3 months.


Welcome! All of us associated with the Texas Research and Technology Foundation and VelocityTX, want to wish you a VERY warm San Antonio welcome! We believe that you will enjoy a very full and informative program that will cover a broad range of topics related to doing business in the United States and simply good practices in business. It is our expectation that you will take home a better understanding of how to do business in the United States and some ideas about how to make your business more successful at home. We hope that you will love San Antonio and South Central Texas as much as we do and continue to do business here.

There is so much activity going on in this region and in Texas, and opportunity for anyone that would consider doing business here is abundant. Some of our time will be spent acquainting you with the San Antonio area and South Central Texas. The entire State of Texas is seeing record amounts of foreign investment.

Your responsibility is to participate to the fullest in this program and related events and take away as much as you possibly can absorb from this experience. It is also important that you have some fun and enjoy your time with TRTF, VelocityTX and San Antonio. Your comments and suggestions at any time and on any topic are welcomed and your evaluation of the program will be of great interest and importance to us!

Please come with an open mind, a positive attitude, to learn and a desire to be inspired, and join us in our efforts to make this a meaningful and valuable experience for each of you.
