It’s kind of like RISE Austin, which used to hold a week long series of talks in Austin at various startups around town. But RISE held its last event in 2013. NewCo requires attendees to register for a ticket. The tickets range from free, which allows a person to attend one event a day for two days to the Platinum pass which includes unlimited sessions and a VIP reception.
The host companies include a who’s who of Austin startup companies, incubators and coworking spaces. They include Capital Factory, Atlassian, BuildASign, Chaotic Moon, Everfest, Favor, General Assembly, Google Fiber, HomeAway, Main Street Hub, RetailMeNot, Spredfast and many more.
The Austin NewCo event starts Thursday night at Atlassian with a VIP Kickoff and Reception. The event features a special fireside chat with NewCo Co-founder John Battelle.
NewCo describes itself as a “new kind of event experience: a mashup of an open studio tour and a business conference, with the vibe of a music festival.” The sessions take place in the offices of the startups to give attendees an insider view of the startup scene. NewCo is holding events in 15 cities around the world this year.
The event concludes Friday evening with a meetup and Capital Factory anniversary party at Palm Door on Sixth Street.
