Experiential Learning For Students

INTERN PROGRAM

The TCU – TechFW Intern Scholars Program enters its 9th year of partnership between the Neeley Entrepreneurship Center and TechFW. Through the generosity of donors undergraduate business students are matched with TechFW Acceleration clients to complete a 200 hour summer internship inside a startup technology company. Students apply and are awarded grants from the Neeley Institute For Entrepreneurship and Innovation to work with these firms and receive valuable experience.

COWTOWN FELLOWS

The Cowtown Fellows Program is a highly coveted opportunity for TCU Students. TCU students, both MBA and undergrads, work with Cowtown Angels, an angel investment group that is a program of TechFW. They participate at every level of the program from observing the initial entrepreneurs investor pitches through 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.
