Students in the Longhorn Startup Lab for the 2014-15 academic year will have access to our co-working and study space located in WEL 2.110. This is across the street from our Thursday class location and is in the heart of campus.
The FLASK is so named because it is a vacated chemistry lab, but it provides high worktables and seating suitable for student team and mentor gatherings. You have lockable drawers if you want to leave your work in progress there or just use this as your private club setting during your normal day on campus. And, we have a conference table with AV for presentations as needed.
The space is open this summer for former students and for those who are applying to the Longhorn Startup Lab for fall semester. It will also house the ATI’s SEAL program, a summer accelerator for entrepreneurial teams engaged in customer discovery and assumption testing with the goal of reaching a go or no-go decision at the end of the program. We’ll be hosting Freshman Founders sessions sponsored by UTLEA and a number of other activities to promote student entrepreneurship.
For permission to use the space, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. He will be holding periodic summer office hours there as well. We will be adding amenities over the summer and look forward to this being the primary gathering spot for students participating in our programs. Invitees are asked to join the FLASK Facebook group so we can keep each other posted on schedules and events.
Accompanying this is a picture of our well-attended “FLASK warming party” in May and a view of the space. We hope to see you there.
