ABOUT LONGHORN STARTUP
Starting your own company is a great way to change the world. You’ve heard how Steve Jobs changed the world with his insanely great products from Apple Computer. More examples: James Truchard changed the world with National Instruments, Bill Gates with Microsoft, John Mackey with Whole Foods Market, Michael Dell with Dell, and Mark Zuckerberg with Facebook. All these founders and their teams are still changing the world, with impacts measured into the millions of jobs and billions of dollars.
Three of these entrepreneurs are still running their companies in Austin. One started his $60B company in a dorm room at UTAustin; another started his $10B company after dropping out of UT; and the third got a PhD here before starting his $1B company. These students want to follow in their footsteps.
