Networking - Mentoring - Funding
SXSW Startup Village brings together the startups, entrepreneurs, investors, and cutting-edge digital tastemakers within the SXSW Interactive Festival. Located primarily on the fourth floor of the Downtown Austin Hilton, this space showcases the various startup events at SXSW Interactive (including SXSW Accelerator, as well as startup-related panels, Meet Ups, lounges, pitch events and mentoring / coaching sessions).
SXSW Startup Village continues to consolidate much of what already happens at SXSW Interactive into one location. Current and future entrepreneurs will benefit from learning and networking with investors, technology trailblazers, media representatives, as well as digital creatives from the exciting industries that come to Austin for SXSW. Startups are an important part of the world economy as well as an important element of SXSW Interactive–we are very excited about all that Startup Village will bring to the event.
