Why I Moved My Investment to Austin

A session at SXSW Interactive 2013

Sunday 10th March, 2013

5:00pm to 6:00pm (CST)

Not only is Austin a cool place to visit for SXSW, it's increasingly recognized by tech investors as an optimal market for serial, high-ROI investments. Austin's ample talent, business-friendly environment, low barrier to entry and badass lifestyle are fueling a new level of investor activity in the Lone Star State.

Join us to hear from local and out-of-towner investors about why they chose to invest in server and cloud analytics company, CopperEgg. Bob Quillin, CEO, Morgan Flager of Silverton Partners and Kenny Van Zant of Asana Ventures will share their reasons why placing the investor bet on Austin was the right-choice, short and long-term.
