Startup Crawl is SXSW Official

One of our favorite events is coming up, and for the first time ever, it’s South by Southwest official. ATX Startup Crawl is taking over the city on Monday, March 13th from 5pm to 10pm, and you don’t want to miss it.

The ATX Startup Crawl celebrates entrepreneurship and technology, and features the hottest advancements in tech from startups and veteran companies alike. Now that it’s a SXSW Official event, the energy at ATX Startup Crawl will be felt through all of Austin. It’s going to be a great night for people to gain visibility in the startup community, launch a product, or recruit talent—and we could not be more excited.

This is the 12th Startup Crawl since beginning in Fall of 2011 and this time around, we’re expecting well over 11,000 crawlers in one evening. There are over 100 companies participating, so get started early and stay late. Here’s a few ways you can make the most out of the crawl:

  • Plan in advance by downloading the ATX Startup Crawl app, developed by Jackrabbit Mobile. The app makes it easy to prep which startups you’d most like to visit by allowing you to pick and choose through an interactive map.
  • Once you have your plan, download the Chariot app. Chariot will be taking attendees to the various stops around the city, and gives attendees the chance to reserve a seat up to 20 minutes in advance. Now that’s some easy crawling!
  • Have business cards ready with your email address, Twitter handle, and cell phone number. They allow for quick networking and are convenient to carry around. You never know who you’ll meet.

We’re honored to be partnering with Capital Factory on ATX Startup Crawl once again. Each crawl is unique, but this one stands out amongst the rest because it is allowing Austin startups to be a part of SXSW. We can’t wait to see y’all there!
