What is NewCo?
NewCo is a new kind of event experience: a mashup of an open studio tour and a business conference, with the vibe of a music festival. Register to attend sessions given by local companies and organizations. You get to pick which sessions you would like to see and which company/organization you’d like to visit in their native environment.
Why should you attend?
80+ of Austin’s awesome and innovative companies are ready to tell you how they’re making an impact both globally and locally. These companies will open their doors for one-hour experiential sessions led by local founders and entrepreneurs. Get ready for behind-the-scene tours of cutting-edge work environments and founders candidly sharing insights from their journey.
Which sessions should you sign up for?
A few times a week, we will feature 10 sessions you should check out on 5/29!
