Aussie Entrepreneurs and Startups land in the USA and pitch at SXSW

Invitation to SXSW Student and Entrepreneur Challenge

A group of Australian entrepreneurs and startups, including prize winners from Venture Dorm, are in the USA from 6.3.16 to 24.3.16 visiting San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Austin, New York and Las Vegas.



Whilst in Austin with the Premier of South Australia, Jay Weatherill @JayWeatherill @BrandSouthAust and the President of the United States, Barack Obama @WhiteHouse @BarackObama @POTUS with First Lady Michelle Obama @FLOTUS, they are keen to hear from you with challenges.  Maybe people to meet, who to get photos with, interview or video record, emerging tech demos and future jobs.
Here is the video that explains how you can get involved and a link to one of the biggest entrepreneurial, innovation and tech festivals in the world SXSW.

Use social media to follow the group, especially via Twitter @twitter with #NVIUS for New Venture Institute @NVIFlinders @Flinders, Tech Ranch @TechRanch NVI’s partner in Austin and #SXSWADL for #SXSW @sxsw and #Adelaide.

It would be amazing to show the power of social media engagement and let’s see if we can get these hashtags trending with you behind us.

You can also send an email to to ask questions whilst we are in the US and here are the social media accounts of the entrepreneurs in the delegation:
