The second annual Austin Startup Week kicks off on Monday.
The five day event attracts students, professionals and even out of towners from Denver, Spokane, Philadelphia, New York City and even Australia who want to check out Austin’s growing startup community.
Jacqueline Hughes and Joshua Baer organized the first Startup Week last September. It was such a success they are back again this year. They expect more than 2,000 people to participate in this year’s activities, which include coffee meetups, a startup career fair, presentations, parties and a “startup crawl,” showcasing more than a dozen startups in their offices.

“Everyone seems to have their eyes on Austin right now,” Baer, founder of OtherInbox and managing director of Capital Factory, said in a statement.
“If you are interested in checking out or getting plugged into the Austin startup scene, there isn’t a better time to come to Austin than during Austin Startup Week,” Hughes said in a statement.
