ABOUT THE GENESIS PROGRAM
Founded by the Longhorn Engineering Advisory Delegation (LEAD), the Genesis Program provides UT Austin students with mentors, investment experience, and early stage funding. Students on the leadership team participate alongside mentors in activities tailored for early stage innovations and help source, screen, select, and support awardees. Funding applicants can be student innovators of any degree level from any college. Applications are assessed for product, market, and execution viability, among other factors. Capital distributions are 100% philanthropic and no equity is retained. Amounts will vary per application and assessment.
Eligible applicants are current University of Texas at Austin students. The Genesis Program targets business makers and hardware creators alike.
