2021 Fire Awards: Top fintech and security startups in Austin

Year after year, Austin startups continue to push the bar higher with bigger funding deals and more lucrative exits. It's a sign of the city's maturing tech ecosystem and the breakneck pace of growth in Central Texas.


That means this year's Austin Inno Fire Awards are, in a sense, bigger and better than ever. It includes innovations bolstered by the ongoing pandemic, such as supply chain and food startups, as well as companies that are literally shooting for the moon. The thing they share in common is a drive to make everything from communications in space to tortilla chips better than they ever have been.
