Student Entrepreneur Acceleration and Launch (SEAL) is The University of Texas at Austin’s selective 12-week summer program designed to help student teams tackle the most difficult, deal-killing questions of their new ventures.

There are currently over 150 ventures at The University of Texas at Austin. Through SEAL, ATI invites 12 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. Over the past seven years of the program, 100 students have participated by taking over 50 ventures through the 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.
