Interested in being part of the entrepreneurial and startup ecosystem in Austin? Here are two awesome-sounding jobs that will remain posted till Wednesday, so please check them out promptly. The Austin Technology Incubator is hiring for these positions, so make sure to apply now. ATI has served the entrepreneur community for over twenty years and focuses on the IT, Wireless, Clean Energy and Bioscience verticals.  In the last three years, it has worked with almost 50 companies that have raised $70M in investor capital, at a 75 % success rate, and its alumni companies have generated over $300M in exits.

IT & Wireless Incubator “Assistant Director”

ATI’s Wireless and IT incubators have supported an incredible slate of companies in the recent past – Calxeda, GameSalad, Spredfast, qcue and numerous others.  The current portfolio ranges from 60 Ghz chip sets (Nitero) to enterprise 2.0 (InXero) to family media (Famigo) companies.  The Assistant Director will manage the deal flow process and lead our due diligence efforts to admit new members.  The person will work directly with founders and leadership of member companies on core issues – go-to–market strategy, market segmentation, financial modeling, revenue models, fund raising, pitch decks, and all the other issues that startups must tackle.   The Assistant Director will also help host the Texas Wireless Summit, the Wireless Seed Stage Forum and the Entrepreneur Lounge at SXSW (this alone is worth it).  ATI also works closely with MobileMondayAustin and Semantic Web Austin.

ATI On Campus “Assistant Director”

ATI has created a suite of programs to foster entrepreneurship at UT and support commercialization of companies based on UT intellectual property – or founded by students and faculty that are commercializing a technology-based insight (which is not owned by UT).  Basically, help find and launch the next Dell, Google, Facebook, Microsoft or all of the other gigantic companies that were launched by college students.  The Assistant Director will lead the UT 3 Day Startup event, ATI’s summer SEAL Program (Student Entrepreneur Acceleration and Launch), “Dorm Room Wet Lab”, support the “hatchery classes”, act as a bridge to Austin for the other key UT entrepreneurship programs and organizations,  and provide mentorship to students interested in entrepreneurship.  The Assistant Director will also work directly with the startups that are supported by these programs and support UT-related startups that are part of the IT, Wireless, Clean Energy or Bioscience incubators.  Recent student based companies ATI has supported include Famigo, Hurricane Party, Eonsil, Hoot, Wibole, and SpectraPhase.
