What is LEA Community?
Maybe you are a student wanting to dive into the entrepreneurship scene. Maybe you have a startup and are looking to meet and learn from other student founders. LEA Community is the best way to connect with other UT students pursuing entrepreneurship. By joining, you will get firsthand access to our weekly newsletter, LEA social events, volunteer events, and networking opportunities with entrepreneurs in the Austin startup scene. Most importantly, you will be an active part of growing a culture at UT that supports and fosters entrepreneurship on campus.
What does it mean to be in LEA Community?
We get that it’s hard to attend startup events around campus and Austin without knowing anyone there, and it’s even harder to find the ones that will be best for you. A huge part of entrepreneurship is the opportunity to share and shape ideas with people who have different skills, backgrounds, interests, and passions. LEA Community will introduce you to students from different areas of campus with whom you can share ideas, develop skills, and attend events. As an LEA Community member, you will play a key role in fostering and growing the entrepreneurial ecosystem. Beyond having a passion for startups, every LEA Community member is present, engaged, and vocal.
Attend events and frequent the Co-Lab.The Co-Lab, UT’s first co-working space on campus, is open to UT students weekdays from 7:00 am - 11:00 pm. Come here to study, meet other students, work on your startup, or just hangout.
LEA firmly believes that every student has a unique background, skill set, and combination of interests to the startup community. Share your ideas, open conversations, and make friends! Who knows where you’ll meet your next co-founder, find funding, or join the next big thing?
As part of the LEA Community, you have direct access to LEA Agents. LEA Agents exist to serve the UT community by providing students with resources, planning events, and connecting you with the Austin startup community. Share your thoughts on ways we can work as a team to foster student-run entrepreneurship at UT.
