Innotech Beta Summit

It’s almost time for Innotech! This annual conference is the largest technology convention in Austin, save the South by Southwest conference which is really a national event. Each year Innotech organizers bring terrific, timely content and relevant national speakers to the Austin Convention Center. There is also a separate eMarketing track for digital marketing professionals.

This year, Innotech will be on Thursday, October 28th. You can register for Innotech here.

We also need nominations for the AITP award. You can nominate someone here. Each year at this event, the members of the AITP hold their annual awards and recognition dinner, awarding several honors including CIO of the Year.

Each year I host a special session at Innotech, the Beta Summit. During the session we highlight 5 of the freshest up-and-coming technology companies or products from Central Texas. The goal is to give you a sneak preview at some products you might not have seen, or have been recently launched. In years past we have had presentations from companies such as OtherInBox (which raised significant angel funding after their appearance), and SpredFast (which landed a Series A round with Austin Ventures after their presentation). If you want to get the inside track on new technology launches, the 4th Annual Beta Summit is the place to see it.

We are currently accepting applications for the Beta Summit here. I encourage everyone to apply. We’re interested in seeing consumer technologies, iPhone applications, enterprise products, cleantech, and everything in between. There is no cost to apply or to present, a perfect fit for early stage companies.

Please help spread the word about the Beta Summit! If you could tweet about it, or tell your friends, that would be great.
