Last March, we held our first Austin TECH Cocktail event as part of the SXSW festivities. We donned our black cowboy hats as part of our Johnny Cash theme and featured over 30 startups from around the country – it was an amazing time.
Now we’re coming back to Austin, hosting a more classic TECH Cocktail startup mixer event to showcase local Austin tech startups and get to know the Austin community better.
Here are the details – register now!
When: Thursday, October 7th, 2010 – 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. CT
Where: Hudson on 5th, 301 W 5th, Austin, TX
What: A “cocktail of TECH people”
Price: $10 (online early bird), $15 (standard), $20 (at the door)
(You must be 21+ to attend)
Helping Startups Get Exposure
TECH Cocktail offers a handful of startups an opportunity to show off in an expo-style to the rest of the Austin entrepreneurial community for FREE. Through the years, we’ve showcased hundreds of startups such as: SCVNGR, SocialThing, The Point (now GroupOn), ArtistData and many more. During past mixer events we have had companies find employees, co-founders, funding and some start-ups have even been acquired.
Our Austin startup lineup includes: Spreadable, Keepstream, Moodfish, Hurricane Party, Karmaback, Ordoro and Famigo. Look for our posts about each startup soon!
Helping Companies Hire Employees, Launch Products and Support the Local Tech Community
We still have sponsorship opportunities at the event which range from $1K to $5K based on the level of participation. Some of our past sponsors have included Google, AOL, Intuit, PayPal, Intel and more. More on our sponsorships can be found here. Or you can contact us at email us! If you are a company looking to hire, you can also leverage the TECH cocktail job board to get the message out early – or you could sponsor the event and use it as your own personal job fair.
Connecting Startups and Investors
To continue to add value and stay true to our “cocktail mixer of tech people” theme, we are calling all Bay area entrepreneurs looking for seed funding or angel investors as we will be trying to help match local startups with local seed or angel investors. If you are an angel investor interested in finding additional deal flow we look to help you too. We know that this type of connection has happened naturally at our events in the past, but we want to help water the seeds a bit and ensure that the fruit of our labor is a better connected entrepreneurial community.

Connecting the technology community
At our TECH cocktail mixer events, you are bound to connect with potential new employees, developers, designers and more. TECH cocktail could be the place where you meet your next employee, co-founder or even get a date.
Spread the word – TECH cocktail is coming back to Austin! Can’t wait to see you all there.
