SXSW: What we’re excited about – Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Say it isn’t so…the last day of South-by-Southwest Interactive 2012 is here. But don’t worry; the fun isn’t over quite yet!

Before you go, make sure you make it to the Interactive Startup Village, where today is “Austin Day” and all of today’s sessions will be Austin focused. Businesses, entrepreneurs, investors, academics and dozens of presenters from Austin will be at the Village and would love to meet and compare notes! Startup Village programming is open to all 2012 SXSW Interactive, Gold, and Platinum registrants and runs from 9:30am to 6pm at the Hilton Downtown Austin 4th Floor Foyer (500 East 4th Street).

Only have time to attend one panel today? You won’t want to miss this one:

How the Austin Region Supports Technology Companies

Moderated by the Austin Chamber of Commerce’s Susan Davenport, attendees will find out what factors have been most successful (and least successful) in the push to position Austin as the nation’s top new media hub. Panelists will also discuss how the public and private sector have employed various strategies to bring more established tech companies as well as more startups to the Central Texas area. #sxsw #ATXTech
