One of the most exciting parts of UT Entrepreneurship Week is the opportunity for students to grow their venture by showcasing their work to the greater community. Student startup teams will demo expo style and pitch their startups to investors, other entrepreneurs, and fellow students at the Student Startup Expo on Tuesday, March 4th from 6 to 8pm, venue TBD. Startups will engage in friendly competition with a panel of judges deciding best startup and crowd vote determining most creative presentation. Thanks to UT Austin’s Technology Entrepreneurship Society for sponsoring this event for the 3rd year in a row.
Startups interested in presenting should fill out this brief application. We are open to startups managed by current students or recent alumni. Participating in the expo as a startup is completely free and will create the opportunity to connect with great mentors, meet investors, and meet potential co-founders and employees. The expo is also a great opportunity for students wanting to get involved in a startup but don’t have an idea of their own. Since this is one of our most interactive events, we are open to pushing the limits of what’s expected. Let us know if you, your student startup, or your organization want to try something unique.
While the expo is a great way to build relationships with other founderati, UT Entrepreneurship Week hosts an array of events where you can share ideas, learn from experts, and grow your venture! Be sure to check out our keynotes by Rod Canion, Founder of Compaq, on March 5th and Michael Dell, Founder of Dell Inc., on March 6th. LEA will continue to announce new events leading up to UTEWeek2014. Your entrepreneurial journey awaits!
