Austin Startup Week
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 alike who are interested in learning more about the startup scene in Austin.
The 2015 lineup, running from October 5-9, was packed full of over 75 events consisting of morning coffees, a startup career fair, EPIC mentor office hours, educational panels, regular meetups, happy hours, workshops, a Battle of the Tech Bands, Demo Day and a “startup crawl,” where more than 75 companies served up drinks and tours. Almost all of the 75+ events organized in 2015 were free and open to the public–no badges required–drawing in over 7,500 attendees and visitors from around the country (and beyond!).
