Event Details

Demo Day

Longhorn Startup Lab invites you to Demo Day where we will showcase the undergraduate startups from our Spring 2014 class. 

Bobby Epstein of COTA

Following presentations by the student teams, Professor Bob Metcalfe will interview our featured guest Mr. Bobby Epstein, founder and chairman of the Circuit of the Americas (COTA), about his experiences creating on a very tight timetable a massive startup that has enhanced Austin on the global stage and brought to our city among its many offerings the most technologically advanced motor sports Formula 1 and MotoGP.


Each startup will get 6 minutes on stage and then you can go and talk to them afterwards. There will be numerous other leaders from the Austin entrepreneurial community in attendence as well.


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.
