Get Investor Ready
The Jon Brumley Texas Venture Labs Accelerator matches Austin-area startups with cross-functional teams of UT Austin graduate students for 10-week long startup consulting projects. Our rigorous market validation process and our students’ research accelerates startups towards funding. At the end of the semester, each Accelerator company is offered an opportunity to present to Austin’s investor community at our capstone Venture Expo event.
All new applications will be considered for the upcoming Fall 2019 cohort. The application deadline is July 31, 2019. Applications received after this date will be considered for the Spring 2020 cohort.
