University of Texas at Arlington's EpICMavs

The University of Texas at Arlington's EpICMavs is a free entrepreneurship program that includes a weekly speaker series and a summer deep dive that helps aspiring entrepreneurs get their start.


The University of Texas at Arlington's Innovation & Commercialization partners with the non-profit startup incubator, TechFW, to present a free entrepreneurship program.

EpICMavs, which stands for entrepreneurship, innovation & commercialization is backed by the trailblazing spirit of UTA's Mavericks. EpICMavs hosts a weekly speaker series lead by entrepreneurs, a startup mini-accelerator program during the summer and a youth camp for aspiring business owners. EpICMavs takes place every Thursday in the Startup Lounge, UTA's collision space and is located on the west side of campus.
