SXSW 2013

We're looking forward to SXSW 2013 in Austin and hope we'll see you there! We've got a couple of exciting events planned:

Friday, March 8 - Old School Bar & Grill
2:30 to 5:30 PM

In celebration of International Women’s Day, Goodwin Procter is hosting a great panel event during SXSW Interactive on Friday, March 8 . One panel will focus on successful female founders, while the other will be a frank discussion with top female investors. The event will take place from 2:30 – 5:30 PM, with Kelly Hoey, founder of the New York based accelerator Women Innovate Mobile, and Christopher Austin, Tech Companies Partner at Goodwin Procter, serving as our hosts. Panelists include Ingrid Vanderveldt, Entrepreneur-in-Residence, Dell; Rachel Weiss, Vice President, Digital Strategy and Innovation, L'Oreal USA; Sara Haider, Senior Software Engineer, Twitter; Christina Koshzow, College Prowler; Nataly Kogan, Co-founder & Chief Happiness Officer, Happier; and Laurel Touby, mediabistro.com. These will be great opportunities to learn about the process of growing a successful company and the do’s and don’ts when pitching a potential investor.

Sunday, March 10 - Parkside

The Founders Workbench Crew is heading back to Austin and we want to see you at what our fans called “the best law firm party –ever?” after SXSW last year. We have reserved a great central location, with a private terrace that overlooks 6th Avenue from 6:00-9:00 PM on Sunday, March 10 and hope to see all of our Founders Friends there.
