Last week, Textline welcomed 25 students visiting from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Every year, the University's Technology Entrepreneur Center and College of Engineering send a select group of students to Silicon Valley during winter break. The 5 day technology entrepreneurship workshop includes visits to startups and leading technology companies. Textline's CEO, Alan Braverman, earned a BS in Computer Science from Illinois in 1996. At Textline's San Francisco headquarters, the visiting students discussed the challenges of startups, learned about cohort analysis, and enjoyed tacos and cupcakes.
