Since 2010, we’ve hosted some huge events that showcase startups from across the globe at South by Southwest (SXSW). Last year, we hosted an all-day #Startuplife celebration that included live interviews with entrepreneurs, startup founders, and thought leaders; a lunchtime event; and our classic startup showcase Mixer event that was judged by tech and startup luminaries. A handful of startups went home with prizes. To capture the festivities, we created this short video:
We are beyond thrilled for SXSW 2014!
This year will feature many of the same festivities, including interviews and a startup showcase with prizes. We’ll also be hosting a lunch with Mobile Future and the Digital DC Day Party. The action will once again take place at Old School Bar & Grill on 6th and Trinity, as we have partnered with the Startup Oasis powered by UP Global and Kauffman Foundation and will be hosting all our events in the space on Saturday, March 8th.
Sponsors & Partners: Of course, we could not do this large-scale event without the support of our partners and sponsors. This year, we are working with .CO, CEA, Mobile Future, WDCEP, SocialRadar, iStrategyLabs, LivingSocial and Revolution – thank you!
There are still opportunities available for us to work together. Drop us a note if you’re interested in getting involved.
Startups: Our huge Tech Cocktail Startup Showcase and Mixer event includes a pitch jam session, where 20 startups do rapid-fire pitches in hopes of being crowned the hottest showcasing startup at SXSW. Vote for your favorite startup now! Participants this year include:
