Several months ago we mentioned that once again, we’ve partnered with SXSW to kick off the SXSW Accelerator program with a Tech Cocktail event of epic proportion. Since then, we’ve been heads down focused on finding a great venue, working with amazing and creative sponsors and most importantly, designing a great experience. We’re so pleased to announce: Tech Cocktail SXSW Presented by LiveShare from Cooliris, Sunday, March 13, 2011 from 8:00 PM – 11:00 PM (CT) – sign up today!
Some of you may remember last year’s event where we had cowboys and cowgirls wandering around, taking photos and showing off shiny new gadgets amongst the dozens of early stage startups who were demoing their products. This year we’ve got even more in store for you.
Our title sponsor, LiveShare by Cooliris will be in the house, creating a gorgeous, interactive visual experience you won’t want to miss. Make sure you download their app in advance. There’s more info coming soon about how you can be a part of it!
Microsoft, our diamond sponsor, will be there supporting startups and making some fun with a mobile dev smackdown. More to come on that soon!
