More than 700 people RSVP’ed to the event on Facebook and Plancast, said Josh Baer, one of the Austin Startup Week founders.
San Antonio-based Rackspace sponsored the event which included shuttle buses taking people from stop to stop. The event was very well organized and a lot of fun.
One of the largest stops was at Capital Factory’s offices on the eighth floor of the Omni Building downtown. All of the Capital Factory finalists were in attendance to talk about their companies along with some other startups. Bob Metcalfe was there too. People mingled and ate pizza, drank beer and margaritas.
The next stop was Infochimp’s offices. It just bought another Capital Factory alumni, Keepstream. They served up beer from a keg and had a bottle of vodka on ice.
Other shuttle bus stops included HomeAway’s offices, UShip, Cloudmasons and more. For the complete list of companies participating in the Austin Startup Crawl visit its Facebook page.
