Every semester, UT Austin’s Longhorn Startup Program gives teams of aspiring student entrepreneurs from engineering, natural sciences and business the opportunity to pitch the companies they’ve developed throughout the semester to a packed house of investors, entrepreneurs and members of Austin’s thriving startup community.
On April 30, 13 student teams will pitch at Longhorn Startup Demo Day, following an interview between Cockrell School of Engineering professor of innovation Bob Metcalfe and founder and CEO of Dell Inc. Michael Dell. Dell will speak about his own startup journey and how his company continues to use startups to innovate.
