UT Startups

UT encourages startup formation as a pathway to bring products to the market. Through the Strategic Plan for Commercialization, UT is dedicated to building a comprehensive continuum of support to ensure long-term viability of our startups.

Discovery to Impact helps startups achieve product/market fit, develop sound business and financial plans, connect to the investor community, and build a team that can further develop and bring products and services to the market.

If you are an investor, please reach out to our Business Development team. They can curate a list of startups that are in scope for your investment thesis, as well as arrange for periodic communications as new startups come online.

If you are an entrepreneur looking for your next startup opportunity and don’t see an interesting fit, please reach out to our Business Development team or review our Technologies Available for Licensing. We have a portfolio of technologies that could serve as the foundation for a startup. Some may be so new that they are not yet on our website, but our Business Development team can help.
