Tech Cocktail loves Austin. This is scientific fact. SXSW serves as a festival highlight year in and year out. But it’s been a few years since we’ve had the privilege of hosting a non-SX-inspired Austin Mixer, and quite frankly, it’s been long enough.
On April 24th, Tech Cocktail is bringing the Mixer parade back to Texas’s capital for a night of startups, local tech enthusiasts, and great conversation- served over cocktails, of course.
We’ll have a dozen up-and-coming startups on hand showcasing their goods, but before the Mixer kicks off, we want to know what you think – who is Austin’s Hottest Showcasing Startup?
Let us know your thoughts by answering the poll at the end of this post (ends at 6:00pm local time on the day of the event). The winner will be announced live at the event and will receive a couple of minutes on stage to pitch their startup in front of all attendees. The winner will also receive inclusion in a top secret, year-end event (get excited). Don’t miss out.
