Startup LLC is a unique opportunity for entrepreneurial-minded first-year students. Participants can expect to be immersed in Texas A&M University’s entrepreneurship ecosystem through programs and events designed by McFerrin Center for Entrepreneurship.

What You’ll Do

During the fall and spring semesters, Startup LLC participants will attend events and activities, focused on growing a student’s entrepreneurial skill-set.

Events– expose students to the mindset of entrepreneurship through interaction with successful entrepreneurs and hands-on activities for exploring the 21st century global entrepreneurial economy.

Activities– residents will join successful entrepreneurs in discussions, participate in various leadership trainings, meet for group meals, and go on tours of local small businesses.

Entrepreneurial Identity- through benchmark discussions, each Startup LLC participant will work one on one with a McFerrin Center Program Manager to identify how they see themselves as an entrepreneur after their time here on campus. This provides a chance for our team to customize an experience specifically for each participant.
