Starting and growing an idea into a business requires having the right people, information and tools. Tech Ranch brings entrepreneurs from all stages together to fill in the missing pieces and leverage the social capital of the community of practice we’ve created.
Here at Tech Ranch we focus on three main values that drive all of our activities. We are looking for those of you who align with who we are to join our community and take advantage of programs, information, mentorship and more.
- We focus on the entrepreneur. This is extremely important to us because we believe that by developing the individual we can create a stronger, better prepared community of entrepreneurs, regardless if their current venture is successful or not.
- We strive to build global bridges. The opportunities to grow, learn and scale reach far beyond Austin, TX. With connections from Japan to Mexico we are consistently adding to our valued community and encouraging cross-collaboration between entrepreneurs across borders.
- We are committed to impacting the World through our entrepreneurs. Tech Ranch understands that the reason individuals start their own venture is many times due to passion. We want to help you achieve personal success and positively impact the world around you.

In 2008, Austin entrepreneurs Kevin Koym and Jonas Lamis founded Tech Ranch with a shared desire to help technology entrepreneurs “take it to the next level.” After creating their own ventures, they noticed an absence of support for entrepreneurs resulting in potential to go unrealized. Driven by the need for more community, Kevin and Jonas remembered the persistent pain that all entrepreneurs experience and shifted focus toward bringing entrepreneurs together into large networks.
