Connect with Entrepreneurship at UT

The McCombs School of Business educates more than 6,000 students a year, giving it one of the largest cumulative impacts of any business school in the world. And, as a partner, you have the chance to engage, influence, and directly impact our most entrepreneurially oriented students and faculty on campus.

The ultimate measure of UT's success is preparing leaders and transforming society. That’s why we’ve found dozens of ways to educate our student entrepreneurs, encourage student engagement in the Austin Startup Community, and serve as an intellectual hub for pioneering research and enterprise.

By volunteering your time and expertise to encourage, educate, and empower student entrepreneurs, you are influencing the next generation of founders and innovators and shaping the ways in which they will help change the world.

How can you encourage, educate, and empower? The opportunities are plentiful and growing.
