Texas Venture Labs Practicum I & II
Jon Brumley Texas Venture Labs (TVL) is an accelerator that connects local startup companies with talented and entrepreneurial graduate students from the MBA, Law, Engineering, Pharmacy, and Natural Sciences programs at the University of Texas. These students participate in semester-long projects solving important problems alongside the company’s founders.
What we do:
Texas Venture Labs students provide research and consulting to local startups on their most pressing challenges in order to:
- Accelerate startups in taking their products to market and making a funding decision
- Give graduate students real-world startup experience
Where you fit in:
If admitted to the program, you'll join a team of five or six students working closely with two startup companies to make an immediate and direct impact on the companies’ development.
You will learn about market validation, competitive analysis, financial analysis, business model assessment, and funding guidance from professors and entrepreneurs, and then apply these skills on projects for the companies.
Previous projects have included identifying and sizing new markets for a fiber-optic sensing platform, and developing a model for marketing costs incurred by a new consumer packaged goods company.
