Startup Aggieland

STARTUPS MADE HERE.

Whether you have an idea for a new product or you’re ready to begin your journey as a business owner, Startup Aggieland is here to help you succeed. Startup Aggieland is the place to be for anyone at Texas A&M who wants to learn more about what it means to be an entrepreneur and become familiar with the process of turning innovative ideas into viable business opportunities. We connect aspiring entrepreneurs with a community and enables them to find programs and resources that can help them pursue their business ideas. If you are interested in founding a startup or bringing an entrepreneurial mindset into corporate cultures, we can help shape your future.

Startup Aggieland programs are organized into three distinct phases: Explore, Pursue, and Launch. Each phase has been designed to offer programs that provide you with resources, support and guidance no matter where you are in your entrepreneurial journey.

Explore

If you want to learn more about entrepreneurship or are an aspiring entrepreneur trying to figure out how to start your journey, Explore is a great place to begin. Explore programs offer informationals, social events, and introductory workshops for you to learn more about what it means to be an entrepreneur and become familiar with the process of turning innovative ideas into viable businesses.

Pursue

If you’re ready to take the next step in pursuing your entrepreneurial interests, then Pursue can help you get started. In addition to other programs and events, you have the opportunity to participate in Startup Aggieland’s pre-accelerator program, Startup Runway. Startup Runway is designed to enable you to explore and validate the feasibility of launching a startup company around an idea or product. Through this program, you will learn lean startup methodologies and develop an understanding of how to find product-market fit.

Launch

Whether you are preparing to launch or are already operating a business, Launch is designed to provide you with access to the community and resources that startup founders need. Also included in Launch is Startup Aggieland’s Business Incubator. Aimed at supporting entrepreneurs that are ready to make the leap of starting and operating a new venture, the Startup Aggieland Business Incubator can support you in the advanced planning, launch, and growth of a startup company around a validated product or business opportunity.
