Jon Brumley Texas Venture Labs proudly welcomes our Fall 2020 TVL Accelerator companies!
Over the summer, JBTVL met and learned from 73 amazing companies from all across Texas in order to select an exciting group of startups to participate in our Fall semester cohort and work with multi-disciplinary teams of graduate students in our TVL Practicum course. The 14 companies that follow represent a diverse range of industries, founders, and technologies, but they all share at least one thing in common. They are all committed to creating amazing learning experiences for UT Austin graduate students while taking their businesses to the next level. We are excited and honored to include them in our portfolio of accelerator companies and look forward to working with them over the next few months!
