The TCU – TechFW Intern Scholars Program enters its 9th year of partnership between the Neeley Entrepreneurship Center and TechFW. Tarleton State University recently joined our internship program in 2022.
Through the generosity of donors, undergraduate business students are matched with TechFW Acceleration clients to complete a 100-hour internship inside a startup technology company. TCU Students apply and are awarded grants from the Neeley Institute For Entrepreneurship and Innovation, while Tarleton students are funded by the Division of Research, Innovation and Economic Development.
They participate at every level of the program - from observing the initial entrepreneurs' investor pitches to funding for those startups that make the cut. In the process, they learn first-hand what qualities investors seek in funding early-stage startups, the “deep dive” questioning and the due diligence that go into the successful funding of a startup. This is an amazing opportunity for TCU students to see entrepreneurial finance and angel investing up close.
The UTA EpICMavs DeepDive is a hands-on workshop held at the Center for Entrepreneurship and Economic Innovation that helps entrepreneurs translate business ideas into real companies.
EPICMAVS DEEP DIVE
During the weekly workshop sessions, entrepreneurs get help and guidance on their companies from experienced mentors. Topics range from business canvas model development, customer discovery, finances, go-to-market strategy and sales concepts.
UTA has partnered with TechFW to put together a week-long camp for kids grade 8-12 to learn more about entrepreneurship.
YOUTH ENTREPRENEUR CAMP
They are introduced to product development, developing a business plan, and basic business principles. The kids get to work and learn at the Center for Entrepreneurship and Economic Innovation and even get a chance to utilize the innovative equipment at the UTA FabLab.
The Office of Technology Management at UTA serves its internal and external clients through education and collaboration while creating opportunities for entrepreneurs to have access to UTA technologies and innovations.
TECH TRANSFER OFFICES
The partnership with TechFW provides UTA faculty, research teams, and entrepreneurs a pathway to the North Texas entrepreneurial community.
By design, the ThinkLab helps founders and entrepreneurs determine whether there is sufficient value to pursue a product or service idea, identify potential markets, develop a path to market strategy, and learn how to communicate the value of the idea to early stakeholders and adopters.
CENTER FOR ENTREPRENEURSHIP & ECONOMIC INNOVATION
The Center for Entrepreneurship and Economic Innovation fosters a vibrant and supportive atmosphere for our students, scholars and researchers as they drive to innovate, commercialize new technologies, and pioneer new companies that will impact our North Texas communities and the global economy for decades into the future.
