Tech Cocktail’s SXSW #StartupLife Celebration 2012 presented by .CO is a very special all day extravaganza. Working with our partners and sponsors, we will create a day long platform on Saturday, March 10th that will include entrepreneurial interviews similar to last year’s Tech Cocktail Delivering Happiness interview series and some private events (lunchtime event, meetups, etc) – all culminating in our official SXSW #StartupLife Celebration Mixer Event open to all SXSWi badge holders.
Saturday night will be the return of Tech Cocktail’s official SXSW Startup Celebration Mixer Event – a “Startup Showcase” mixer style event at SXSWi (check these links out in case you missed the last two years – SXSW 2011 and SXSW 2010). Past showcased startups at our events have received great feedback and press, been funded on the spot, met new employees and investors, and some have even been acquired. Some of our SXSW showcased startup alumni include Foodspotting, Khush, Mobile Roadie, Storify, Tango, Sifteo, Sphero, Votizen, PopVox, GameSalad and many more. If you are interested in being a showcased startup this year at our SXSW event, fill out this application form before January 31st. We’ll select 20+ companies to participate at our event and pitch their stuff to a handful of judges (judges will be announced soon). We’ll be awarding prizes to the highest rated startups.
