If so, join Louise Epstein and the Liberal Arts Student Ventures team in this introductory startup workshop on "How to be a Great Founder." Must be a UT student to attend. All majors are welcome.


Students will hear Louise's answers to the questions above, have the opportunity to ask other questions regarding entrepreneurship as well as meet other entrepreneurially minded students. After the presentation and Q&A, students will have the opportunity to receive feedback on their lean canvas from Louise and the rest of the audience. Therefore, we ask attendees arive with a completed lean canvas in order to make the most of the workshop. The lean canvas doesn't have to be on a real startup but could simply be applied to startup idea you have. Learn more about and access the lean canvas tool at
