IC² and ATI at SXSW 2018

Austin’s busiest week of the year is coming up again. Here’s where to find the IC² Institute and the Austin Technology Incubator at SXSW 2018.

This year several of our events will be held in conjunction with our friends at the Arctic Business Incubator in Luleå, Sweden. A group of startups from Sweden, Norway, France, Germany and beyond will participate in what we’re calling the “IC² International Incubation Mash-up.” The mash-up will consist of rapid pitch training, a guided tour through the whirlwind of SXSW with a focus on internationalization opportunities for European startups, and a final QuickPitch event organized by IC² at the House of Scandinavia. You are welcome to join the fun in the opening and closing sessions on Friday, March 9 and Tuesday, March 13.

Another focus of our activities will be the SXSW Cities Summit, sponsored by the Austin Technology Incubator. The Summit will consist of two full days of programming on March 12 and 13, particularly featuring the SXSW Cities Summit Startup Spotlight presented by ATI.
