In the 1980s, several seeds were planted that led to the entrepreneurial environment Greater Austin enjoys today. Among these seeds were the State’s winning bid for the MCC, the founding of Austin Ventures, and the founding of Tivoli Systems. These seeds and many more grew the need for today’s incubator, accelerator, and other hybrid programs. Some programs are comprehensive with office space, mentorship, and year-round access to resources. Others are more virtual and episodic, but no less critical to company founders. With the growth in the pool of entrepreneurs, the diversity of programs has grown, for sports, packaged goods, university students, and more. Who are the people behind these programs? What kinds of companies are being developed via the incubators & accelerators? What does the future hold? Speakers include Bryan Menell of Capital Factory, Mellie Price of Source Spring, Isaac Barchas of ATI, & Mark Pannes of RaptorAccelerator, and Steve Guengerich of BroadBrush Ventures.
