On Wednesday, August 3 the Austin Chamber in partnership with SXSW held the 11th Annual A-LIST Awards. This event is designed to recognize homegrown companies in various growth stages. These companies are developing new ways to connect with customers while transforming their industries and creating a robust culture for their employees. For the first time this year, the A-LIST Awards also honored Investors of the Year.

This year’s event was held at the Long Center for the Performing Arts and featured both a VIP reception beforehand and an after-party following the event with live music, food, and drinks. At the VIP reception Austin Chamber Board Chair Fred Heldenfels welcomed the crowd and introduced special guest Congressman Lloyd Doggett, who joined us for the event.
