For all of you here at SXSW – and those of you who have attended in the past – you know that just attending the festival is a major undertaking, involving a ton of coordination. (And part of attending this year means doing anything to stay dry and out of the pouring rain.) The Tech Cocktail team is super excited about hosting several events today as part of our #StartupLife Celebration. It will add up to one very long – but super fun – day, and there is no way we could have done it without our amazing sponsors.
Here is a rundown of what to expect at our venue, The Stage on Sixth, 508 East 6th Street, Austin, TX. We look forward to seeing you!

Tech Cocktail’s SXSW Video Series presented by Vitrue
The Tech Cocktail team will be interviewing a host of entrepreneurs and thought leaders from 9:30 to 3 as part of our SXSW Video Series presented by Vitrue – it’ll be similar to our Tech Cocktail SXSW Delivering Happiness Video Series we did last year. We’ll be releasing the videos over the course of a few days, so keep an eye out for them.
