    The University of Texas at Arlington and TechFW have created a strategic partnership called TechFW@UTA. This partnership serves UTA faculty, staff and students by providing programs, activities, and services geared to nurture innovations made by the University of Texas. TechFW@UTA works through a number of programs. The Breakthrough program provides the tools needed to determine whether a technology is best commercialized through a start-up company or licensing to an established company, consisting of a series of escalating one-on-one sessions. The Think Lab is designed for very early stage startups and includes intensive, hands-on workshop series. The Acceleration program is designed for early stage companies commercializing new and unique technologies. TechFW@UTA will assist with attaining community visibility, creating a business infrastructure, developing a management team, recruiting external advisors, accessing funding, and more.
