Ever wonder what keeps so many people from launching a new endeavor or scaling a creative venture into something exponentially more impactful? More often than not, the answer isn't a lack of ideas, money, a team or a plan...it's far more primal. The answer is fear. Instead of brainstorming new ideas, in this session you will discover how to move from ideation to action, overcome the three greatest fears that hold creatives, artists and entrepreneurs back, and find a more stable path to success.
In a highly-anticipated return to SXSW, an all-star lineup of designers, programmers, and entrepreneurs compete to pitch their worst startup ideas in short lightning rounds. Winner gets funded by a real VC.
NOTE: By popular demand, there will be a second performance of this session on Monday 5pm in Hilton Salon C.
11th–15th March 2011
