The Center of Gravity Toastmasters normally meet on the 16th floor of the Capital Factory in downtown Austin (outside of quarantine, that is).
Capital Factory is the “Center of Gravity” of innovation in Austin. As such, the Center of Gravity Toastmasters pride themselves on their entrepreneurial, outside-the-box approach to leadership and public speaking. Our club gets traction from some of the most innovative companies Austin has to offer. We offer a supportive, energetic environment that’s easy to plug in to. Join us!
Join us for a night of networking and pitches. You’ll hear 5 Austin based start-ups pitch their product for 99 seconds!
Founders Live is an unforgettable happy hour competition sweeping the country where up to five handpicked companies take the hot seat, with only 99 seconds to pitch their company and describe their value proposition in front of an eager audience. After the pitches and audience Q&A, the crowd will vote on a winner who will not only receive an award, but recognition from the crowd and also the opportunity to talk more about their product or service. So bring your friends and coworkers, grab some food and drink, get to know your local entrepreneurs and vote for what you think will be the next big thing… built in Austin
The vision of the Austin Marketo User Group (AMUG) is to have a community of local Marketo experts that can be leaned on for advice, help, and support on the projects they are working on. The meetup format includes a speaker giving a talk on topic, discussion/ Q&A, then networking afterwards. The user group is also open to the public who has a general interest and would like to learn more about marketing automation.
Started in 2011, Austin Startup Week is five days of events celebrating Austin startups, the organizations and meetups that support them and all the awesome people that make them happen!
Each year, organizations and startups open their doors, put on events and roll out the red carpet for both locals and visitors who are interested in learning more about the startup scene in Austin.
We’re excited to share that the 10th annual Austin Startup Week is going virtual from October 5-9, 2020. Over the last few months, we have been inspired to see the Austin community come together to offer support, collaboration, and resources to one another. As we adjust and adapt to the new reality, it’s urgent that we continue to focus on supporting each other, removing barriers, facilitating connections, sharing resources and finding a way through this as a community. We hope you’ll join us October 5-9, 2020 for a week of engaging sessions, workshops, special events, and amazing speakers, all on a virtual stage.
Capital Factory is dedicated to increasing diversity in the entrepreneurial and tech community while making our coworking space an inclusive environment for all. On October 5th, Capital Factory, along with Google for Startups, Sana Benefits, Baker Botts, and DivInc, will be hosting the Women in Tech Summit to kick off Austin Startup Week.
Earlier this year, we published our 2019 Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Report, which reflects on our work the past few years, what we’re doing currently, and how we want to continue improving in the future. If you have any feedback or comments, we’d love to hear from you!
Who is the event for?
Women leaders, entrepreneurs, and allies in tech who support and invest in diversity and inclusion focused primarily in the Texas and Austin area.
