ATI Student Resources
Our close relationship with the University of Texas at Austin enables ATI to make student interns available to our member companies – bridging innovation-minded, start-up experienced students with our top deep tech startups. We are highly selective in recruiting our ATI Student Associates (interns) to ensure they align with defined needs of our member companies.
Our commitment to our ATI Student Associates is to expose them to real-world issues and startup immersion; along with a business network that has career-long benefit – expanding their education beyond “grades” to actual real-world impact with evidence of experience.
