Austin Startup Week Kicks Off #ASW2017

It’s the Seventh Annual Austin Startup Week.

Silicon Hills News started in September of 2011, the same month the first Austin Startup Week took place.

Back then, the event was much smaller and the tech community in Austin was a whole lot smaller too.

Austin Startup Week is still led by the two founders, Jacqueline Hughes and Joshua Baer. This year, South by Southwest is sponsoring the week-long list of activities.

On Monday, the Austin Technology Council’s Battle of the Bands takes place at Mohawk. The bands include “Indeed’s “The Snowmen,” Visa’s “Rumor Whiskey,” Aktary Tech’s “Touring Machine,” RetailMeNot’s “The Wailsharks,” Shipstation’s “The Ship Kickers,” and ClearBlade’s “bird,” and “Golden Solid.” HEADLINER: Derrick Davis.”

Also on Monday, Capital Factory, Baer is hosting The State of Texas Entrepreneurship at 5 p.m. with tech leaders from all over the state.

On Tuesday, Silicon Hills News is hosting Content Creation for Entrepreneurs to Drive Engagement at 8 a.m. at Galvanize.

At noon on Tuesday, the Central Texas Angel Network is hosting an entrepreneurial workshop at Galvanize focused on early stage and angel investing.

On Wednesday, Damon Clinkscales is hosting Austin Open Coffee at Atlassian starting at 9 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. but it looks like the event is full. Gotta sign up early for these popular events.

If you missed Damon at Open Coffee, you can catch him Wednesday evening at 6 p.m. at Capital Factory interviewing Bob Metcalfe, professor of innovation at the University of Texas at Austin, inventor of Ethernet, co-founder of 3Com, publisher, pundit, venture capitalist and more at Startup Grind Austin.

This year, Austin Startup Week has an international panel which kicks off Thursday at 3 p.m. at Capital Factory.

And the famous Austin Startup Crawl starts at 5 p.m. on Thursday.

See the full schedule here. Registration is required. Tickets are free but organizers are also collecting donations this year and if you’d like to support DivInc, an accelerator that promotes diversity in Austin, all donations will be given to support that organization.
