The UTSA Student Innovation and Entrepreneurship (SIE) program is a cross-disciplinary effort linking innovation to commercialization. SIE integrates diverse knowledge and perspectives and engages broad audiences from across UTSA to turn imagination into innovation.

We provide space—both physical and mental—to foster innovation and entrepreneurship among all UTSA students, faculty and the San Antonio community through education, real-world experiences, resources, and support to create new technology-based ventures, serving as a catalyst for progress in the regional entrepreneurial ecosystem.

$100K Student Technology Venture Competition

SIE hosts the annual $100K Student Technology Venture Competition to give students hands-on experience as early stage entrepreneurs. Teams of interdisciplinary students work throughout the semester to develop a technology demonstrator and business plan to successfully develop a new company. 

Applications Open!
Upcoming Event: February 8, 2023, at 5:30 p.m. (Competition Kick-off)
