Entrepreneurship & Innovation

Longhorn Startup Demo Day

As a top-notch research institution devoted to changing the world, The University of Texas at Austin believes it's critical to foster the entrepreneurial spirit that runs deep in all of our colleges and schools. And that's why we've found dozens of ways to educate our student entrepreneurs, encourage local startup community engagement, support tech commercialization, and serve as an intellectual hub for pioneering research and enterprise. Our cutting-edge programs, resources, events and opportunities have helped to establish UT Austin as an essential engine of the booming innovation and knowledge economy, and we're proud to be at the forefront of the intersection between higher education, innovation and entrepreneurship.
