Think your business plan can hold up against fierce competition? The recently announced Texas Venture Labs Scholar Program from the Jon Brumley Texas Venture Labs (TVL) could help fund your MBA. The program awards scholarships to entrepreneurs to pursue their startup businesses as part of earning their MBA.
The total potential value of each TVL Scholar award is $175,000. Competition winners will receive a scholarship package of $50,000, and their startups will be accepted into the Texas Venture Labs accelerator program, also valued at $50,000. Winners will also be automatically considered for a TVL summer internship and for a prestigious position as a postgraduate Accenture TVL Venture Partner, a combined value of $75,000.
Business plans and presentations must be submitted electronically by Jan. 7, 2013. Finalists selected from this group will participate in the competition Feb. 9 on the University of Texas at Austin campus. Plans will be judged by a panel including TVL’s Accenture Venture Partners and representatives from the Texas MBA admissions committee and the McCombs entrepreneurship faculty.
