The Texas Venture Labs Investment Competition (TVLIC) is designed to mimic the real-world process of raising venture capital. Graduate students from the University of Texas at Austin present their ideas for new businesses and receive invaluable feedback from entrepreneurs and investors. Many TVLIC competitors go on to launch their businesses. Successful competitors have included uShip, Ordoro, BeatBox Beverages, Phurnace Software and Qcue among others.
TVLIC gives away more than $58,000 a year in prizes during its fall and spring competitions. The competition is open to any UT Austin graduate student. For questions, please see the Rules and FAQs or contact us at infoTVL@mccombs.utexas.edu.
