Description

This is the best way for to meet each of the Mentors and find your match! Each Mentor should be looking for 1-2 student teams they want to work with and each student team should be looking for 2-3 Mentors they want to work with.

Take a look at the list of companies before you come and identify the ones you find most interesting.

It's important that you show up on time, in order to get put in the rotation.

Here's how it works:
1. Each student team is assigned a table with a number from 1-10
2. Mentors introduce themselves to the group (2 mins each)
3. Each mentor sits down at a table
4. Every 5 minutes, the mentors get up and move to the next table


There is only going to be 1 night of speed dating.
Every team member must attend the event.

We will have pizza there!

Organizer Longhorn Startup

Organizer of Longhorn Startup Lab Mentor Speed Dating Fall 2014

The Longhorn Startup Seminar is a lecture-based course in the Fall semester that features prominent entrepreneurs telling the stories of how they founded their companies and answering questions from the students. Students get to pitch their idea to the class and participate in speed-dating events to meet potential co-founders and get advice from mentors. Any student from any college can register for CS178 plus we have ES177 MAN137 COM125 FA160.

The Longhorn Startup Lab is an intensive project-based course in the Spring semester that identifies student entrepreneurs who are building scalable technology companies and gets them real course credit for working on their startups while still in school. These students receive weekly one-on-one mentoring sessions with successful entrepreneurs and free coworking memberships at Capital Factory. The semester culminates in a Demo Day where the students present their companies to the Austin community. Any student from any college can register for either of these course numbers: CS378 ES377E MAN337 COM325. You MUST ALSO fill out this application form for instructor approval.
