SXSW: Meet us at a Celebration of Entrepreneurs

March 8, 2018

Every year, I look forward to South By Southwest (SXSW), Austin’s annual music/film/interactive/comedy festival. Not just because it’s in my backyard of Austin, Tx. Not just because Dell puts on a fabulous week-long activation called the “Dell Experience.” I look forward to it because SXSW attracts the best of the best in terms of entrepreneurial spirit. The likes of Twitter and Foursquare chose SXSW to launch themselves onto the world. And for good reason. The energy at SXSW is unparalleled…
