About the UT Horizon Fund

Our Mission
To accelerate the success of UT System-based companies.


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.
