Longhorn Startup Spring 2015 Demo Day
CLEE was proud to coordinate and produce a successful Longhorn Startup Demo Day on April 30, 2015 that attracted over 1,000 people. UT Professor of Innovation, Bob Metcalfe, interviewed featured guest speaker Michael Dell, founder and CEO of the world's largest startup, Dell Inc. Metcalfe talked with Dell about his startup journey beginning with founding Dell in his UT dorm and making it the multi-billion dollar company it is today. Following the interview, 13 student teams took the stage to pitch their very own startups to a group of Austin's most influential business owners and investors.
During the Longhorn Startup Lab, undergraduate students form interdisciplinary teams to start real companies. They gain applicable experience from the resources of a semester-long program of startup acceleration led by well-known faculty who are practitioners of the art and are augmented by successful guest speakers and team-specific mentors.
Corporate Recognition Event
CLEE honored its many corporate partners at the 4th Annual Corporate Luncheon on March 2, 2016, featuring co-founder of 3-D printing Dr. Joseph J. Beaman. Among the many corporate attendees companies like Dell, TxDOT, Intel, National Instruments and ERCOT were happy to join the 3-D printing conversation and pose relevant questions about the future of 3-D printing.
Dr. Beaman highlighted the history of 3-D printing from its origin in the Selective Laser Sintering who's technical work has had a significant and growing impact on society. Solid Freeform Fabrication and Selective Laser Sintering equipment are now widespread.
The future of this technology will be applicable cross a broad spectrum from bio-medical to automotive parts.
