Austin Startup Week Kicks Off Today
Austin Startup Week, the week long celebration of all things startup in Austin, kicks off today. The week long event features over 30 local organizations and meetups this week, starting off with such events as a career fair from MadeInAustin, the ATC Battle of the Banks, and a session on Google Fiber at Capital Factory today. A complete list of events for the week has been posted online. According to the week's organizers, it was able to fly in 10 people from across the country this year to see what's happening in Austin. Those efforts are part of an outreach to attract startups and potential employees to Austin's startup community.
