In the meantime, make sure you check out today’s events:

What do a sonic branding firm, a social enterprise, an education service, and a technology start-up have in common? The founders of these companies all participated in The Bridging Disciplines Programs here at UT Austin. Stages of Entrepreneurship highlights the journey and evolution of one current student and three UT alumni entrepreneurs.
This program will focus on entrepreneurship hacks and other productivity techniques, how to finance a start-up company, how to organize business operations, and the big picture-rearview mirror of entrepreneurship. The session will end with a Q&A segment from the audience, followed by networking time with the four presenters. Want to see some startups being launched by students on campus right now? Interact with them one-on-one at the UT Austin Student Startup Expo on March 4th during UT Entrepreneurship Week.
