EMBED IN THE ECOSYSTEM

Texas Startup Accelerator courses prepare students to think analytically, ask the right questions, solve problems, start a new venture, develop and launch new products for existing companies, and be an entrepreneur in a corporation. This is achieved by educating students in the skill-set needed to compete in any ecosystem, providing student engagement opportunities with invited speakers, and working with innovators and startups.

Completing a Texas Startup Accelerator course will satisfy both Requirement 5 of the Entrepreneurship Minor program and the experiential learning requirement for BBA students.

A group of five people, with one man in a blue suit speaking while the others listen intently, are chatting during a break at the Blockchain Practicum Demo day at the University of Texas at Austin.

“I really enjoyed the Blockchain
practicum course and the opportunity to
work with Z-Bikez, a local electric vehicle
startup, increased my exposure to how
much around-the-clock responsibility
founders have within a startup. Also, it’s
comforting taking courses with like-
minded individuals that seek fulfillment
in similar ways as you.”
