The University of Texas at Arlington is celebrating the thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem within our community this Global Entrepreneurship Week. UTA has joined forces with Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) Fort Worth to host StartUp Con. StartUp Con is a series of free virtual events to inspire and support future and current entrepreneurs.
UTA has a regional economic impact of $ 17.1 billion. Still, the true influence of UTA is even greater because of its commitment to fostering entrepreneurship. UTA supports entrepreneurs by offering various resources to students and the community, including the Mav Pitch business competition with 15,000 in venture capital and the Mavs 100 awards ceremony.
