Austin Startup Week 2015 Information
Nestled in-between the first and second weekend of the Austin City Limits (ACL) Festival is Austin’s Startup Week that is October 5th - 9th. Austin Startup Week is five days of events celebrating Austin startups, the organizations and meetups that support them. Since 2011 organizations and startups have opened their doors, put on events and roll out the red carpet for both locals and visitors during Austin Startup Week. Currently there are more than 1,752 startups in Austin with new ones starting almost daily. Austin Startup Week gives everyone the opportunity in the startup community to meet each other and network through different events planned throughout the week.
Something unique to Austin Startup Week is if there are people who want jobs in tech or have a startup and are interested in relocating to Austin, Texas they may fly a few people in on their dime. If you would like to learn more about this opportunity click here.
Recently they released the schedule for this year’s Austin Startup Week which you can find here. Austin Startup Week is free however you must register here to attend. I also recommend checking on Eventbrite for event’s during Austin Startup Week and RSVP as the venues do fill up fast. I have already registered for the ATC Battle of the Tech Bands on October 5th and starting to sign up for other events throughout the week.
I hope to see you guys at this weeklong event in my hometown, Austin. To find out what venues I will be at during Austin Startup Week follow me on twitter @nrpena.
