ATI SEAL Program
ATI SEAL NEWS
ATI’s Student Entrepreneur Acceleration and Launch (SEAL) program is The University of Texas at Austin’s selective nine-week summer program designed to help student teams tackle the most difficult, deal-killing questions of their new ventures.
Each year there are over 150 ventures at The University of Texas at Austin. Through SEAL, ATI invites ~10 of these teams into an intensive, mentor-driven program designed to accelerate the ventures and drive a go/no-go decision from the student founders. Since 2009, 100 students have participated by taking over 50 ventures through the ATI SEAL program. Two-thirds of SEAL graduates successfully raised capital or bootstrapped the company to market. Previous SEAL teams include: Ordoro, M87, Lynx Labs, AdBm Technologies, Beyonic Technologies, Favor, Accordion Health, and more.
