The Best Austin Startups

Several focused students

Our Accelerator Companies are rigorously vetted in the Spring and Fall before even joining the cohort. Then we match those companies with graduate students to perform independent market validation.

During Venture Expo, we showcase the current cohort and invite the investment community to attend. The next Venture Expo will be held in fall 2019.
