Local Arlington resident Scott Parsinen ('94 BA, Business) started his company, Cadmus Dental, by participating in UTA's StartUp Lounge, an innovation space that provides workshops and holds interactive discussions to help entrepreneurs move their business ideas or companies forward. Close to 400 students, faculty, and community members have passed through the StartUp Lounge's EpicMavs and EpicMavs Deep Dive entrepreneurship courses.
"Through EpicMavs, I was able to network with amazing fellow entrepreneurs and get the support I needed during the difficult startup process," Parsinen says. Cadmus has seen great success, and now Parsinen is developing additional opportunities for Cadmus and UTA.
"Under our Strategic Plan 2020 Bold Solutions | Global Impact, the University aims to be at the vanguard of nurturing budding entrepreneurs who will create products, services, and high-quality jobs in our community and contribute to the world through their intellectual talent and unwavering fearlessness," says President Vistasp Karbhari.
