UT Arlington students have bright business ideas—from hydrogen-powered drones to 3D-printed concrete homes to K-pop themed T-shirt lines. The university shone a light on 10 of them—along with $185,000 in total funding—at the finale of the MavPitch Business Competition. “We use the generous awards and other resources to encourage, grow, and mentor these fledgling student-run firms,” says UTA's Jeffrey McGee.
