This year’s SXSW Interactive is coming up fast, and if you’re the founder of a startup, then you know that how important it is to to have a strong presence at the annual festival. Historically, launching your startup at SXSWi has given companies the opportunity to become a part of the national conversation. At last year’s SXSWi, Meerkat absolutely dominated, and the company’s efforts enabled it to catapult itself onto the national stage. The company’s efforts also sparked interest into the future of live streaming apps – which, today, is one of the more significant industries being discussed happening in the tech space.

But it’s hard work to get your name out at SXSW – you’ve got to hit the pavement, hand out stickers/hats/chapsticks/whatchamacallits, and try to be heard above the noise. As part of Tech.Co’s mission to help startups amplify their voice and demo their products, we hold an annual Tech.Co Startup Night at SXSW- one of the hottest parties in Austin, TX during the event.

If you’re a big-time fan of a startup that’s headed to Austin to showcase at Tech.Co’s Startup Night at SXSWi 2016, but can’t make it down yourself to Texas, then you can still support them from home by voting in the Tech.Co’s SXSW Startup of the Year Reader’s Choice Poll!
