The Best Austin Startups
Our Accelerator company alumni have successfully received funding approximately 43% of the time. This is due in large part to the work our graduate students do for our Accelerator companies. Our motto is Investor Ready and we work to help our companies connect with investors.
Check out this semester's cohort of companies here.
Listings of past cohorts can be found on our blog at blogs.McCombs.utexas.edu/texasventurelabs

Attend the Student Investment Competition
Each semester we host an Investment Competition that is open to all UT Austin graduate students. Each team is a going concern planning to launch their startup within the next year. The next Texas Venture Labs Investment Competition will be held on Friday, May 8, 2020 in Rowling Hall from 9 AM until 5 PM.
The Texas Venture Labs Investment Competition (TVLIC) is designed to mimic the real-world process of raising venture capital. Graduate students from the University of Texas at Austin present their ideas for new businesses and receive invaluable feedback from entrepreneurs and investors. Many TVLIC competitors go on to launch their businesses. Successful competitors have included uShip, Ordoro and Qcue among others.
TVLIC gives away more than $58,000 a year in prizes during its fall and spring competitions. The competition is open to any UT Austin graduate student. For questions, please see the Rules and FAQs or contact us at infoTVL@mccombs.utexas.edu.
