Investment Approach

  • We are a formative stage venture capital fund.
  • We invest in companies that have UT System innovations or equity.
  • We are a collaborative co-investor and a committed long-term partner.
  • We do not price or lead a round.

Investing in UT innovators makes sense. 
The UT System Board of Regents created the UT Horizon Fund in 2011 to help System-related companies create social and financial wealth.

Today, the UT Horizon Fund is part of a thriving ecosystem that makes Texas one of the best places in the world to start and grow a company.

With $50M in committed capital to date, the UT Horizon Fund is one of the leading university-sponsored strategic investment vehicles in the United States.

We are currently investing alongside other capital sources in growing companies with tangible ties to UT System institutions.

Are we a fit for you?
If your company is seeking funding, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Does your company have a technology license agreement with a UT System institution or does a UT System institution own equity in your company?
  • Does your company have a full-time CEO or leader?
  • Have you started implementing a business plan?
  • Do you have a reasonable expectation that you will attract other investors in your current funding round?

If you answered yes to the above questions, 
Apply For Funding or Contact Us to set up an initial discussion.
