7 Minutes To Understand the UT Startup Scene Progressions inside #LonghornDemoDay

by Larry Chiang on April 29, 2015

By Larry Chiang

I read startup ecosystems like Tom Brady reads NFL patterns.

I may not have a summa cum laude, graduate degree like he, but I do spend energy in Texas. Remember, I’m the guy that discovered Chamillionaire exactly 6 TechCrunch Summer parties ago. Chamillionaire, from Houston, is now an EIR at UpFront ventures with Mark Suster. Suster is an LA based VC. Anyway, here is coverage for you Silicon Valley execs that “don’t get on planes”…
Longhorn Demo Day is twice per year. April and December. UT is on the semester system. The semester system is like quarters. But halves. With a bonus summer.

So summer quarter here at Stanford, would be like summer school at UT.
