Move your startup to Austin for FREE at SXSW!January 19, 2013 by Joshua Baer
Meet 10 tech startups that have a clear path to being profitable on less than $1 million in funding. That doesn’t mean they aren’t big ideas, it just means they are capital efficient and the entrepreneurs are scrappy. They have customer traction and now they are ready to put the pedal to the metal. Read more about our investment thesis.
12 of the 14 companies that presented at our last Demo Day in October received funding.
First we’ll give an intro to angel investing. Then we’ll showcase 5 of the hottest startups in Austin. Finally we’ll showcase 5 startups that are not from Austin and pick one winner to move here for free!
We’re kicking off SXSW Interactive! This is the main event of the SXSW Startup Village on Friday afternoon. We have Salon A, B & C on the 4th floor of the Hilton Hotel with room for 1,000 people and a few dozen startups.
