Small Business Day at South By South West SXSW 2013
Two days of SXSW 2013 have passed and the word on the street is that there are over 25,000 people attending the conference. On the second day we were part of two Small Business events.
SXSW SMALL BUSINESS MEETUP
The first ever SXSW Small Business Meetup hosted by Ramon Ray that took place at the Proof Annexe on 6th Street in Downtown Austin. To make the event more participative Ramon Ray organized the event to make the attendees network as part of a group and discuss the top challenges and solutions to overcome them. Attendees also had a chance to win the book “The Facebook Guide to Small Business Marketing” and many other prizes from InfusionSoft.
