NewCo Austin is a new kind of conference that takes people into the work spaces of some of Austin’s most innovative companies.

The conference takes place on July 26th and 27th at various locations around town, and Capital Factory is hosting several sessions as an affiliate partner of the conference.

This year, NewCo Austin expanded from one day to two days because of the demand from the Austin technology community for more sessions. NewCo Austin is part of NewCo, based in New York, which produces these field trip like conferences in some of the world’s hottest tech spots. Silicon Hills News wrote this story on the conference last year.

“Austin is one of the fastest growing cities in the country and also one of the best places for startups and innovation. People in Austin are driven by a sense of purpose within their work. They seek to answer ‘Why?’ their work is valuable. NewCo Austin uncovers and celebrates that ‘Why’, highlighting the city’s very best mission driven organizations,” Joshua Baer, Executive Director of Capital Factory, said in a news release.

NewCo Austin features a full schedule of sessions from more than 90 companies including Amazon, Google Fiber, 3 Day Startup, Dell Medical School, WP Engine, Bazaarvoice, just to name a few. It also includes new startups and ventures like Haven, PopUp Play, Raven & Lily, and Notley Ventures.

“Austin inspires the world, serving as a site for the exchange of creative ideas, not just during its world-famous events, like SXSW and Austin City Limits, but also year round, through the work of local organizations like Capital Factory, Entrepreneurs Foundation, and the Austin Chamber of Commerce,” NewCo’s Chief Evangelist and co-founder Brian Monahan, said in a news release. “NewCo’s mission is to identify and celebrate new kinds of companies big and small, creating positive change in how they work, what they create in the world, and who they are as citizens of their community. That is exactly the type of energy driving Austin today.”

Tickets start at $30 and can be purchased at the NewCo ATX website.
