Our close relationship with the University of Texas allows ATI to supply access to talent that startups couldn’t otherwise afford. We are highly selective in recruiting our Associates to ensure they provide real value to our member companies.

If one or more Founders is a current or recent graduate of UT-Austin, join the cross-campus ATI student accelerator. SEAL will begin again in June 2016 with a capstone Decision Day event at the end of summer.

ATI team members frequently teach courses in several departments at UT Austin. Examples include sections of UGS 302 on entrepreneurship, a graduate course on Global Management which included a field trip to Ghana, and numerous courses on energy and energy policy.
3 Day Startup (3DS)
Founded by UT students in 2008, 3DS brings together students from diverse backgrounds and degree plans to form an idea, create a business plan, model a prototype, and finally pitch the business to mentors and investors–all over one weekend. Since ATI formed the initial set of mentors and linked 3DS with sponsors and representatives from UT, 3DS has expanded its program to 60 schools across five continents and launched nearly 80 companies.
