About the Practicum
The JBTVL Practicum connects graduate students from across the university with startups from the Austin community.
The class is held on Monday evenings from 6 PM - 9 PM. The course consists of two main components: 1) team consulting projects for two startups and 2) seminars on business topics led by experts and startup veterans. Teams include business, law, engineering, science, and other UT Austin graduate students. Consulting projects are typically related to market validation, go-to-market strategy, competitive analysis or financial modeling in order to prepare the company to present to investors at the end-of-semester Venture Roundtable.
