Startup-Focused Office Hours: Dec 11

The Forrest Four-Cast: December 8, 2018

Dhinuka Perera from SXSW will be answering all your startup-related questions on Tuesday, December 11. Perera is the person who organizes the popular “Entrepreneurship and Startups” track (March 8–12), as well as the “Tech Industry & Enterprise” track (March 8–13).

He can also answer your questions about SXSW Release It, which is a competition for both startups and established companies which are launching new products and services in March. The entry deadline for SXSW Release It is end of the day on Thursday, January 17.

Additionally, if you stop by on December 11, then you can put your name in a drawing to win these four startup-focused books by authors who have been participants in the SXSW Book Reading program:

  1. Good Is the New Cool: Market Like You Give a Damn Hardcover by Afdhel Aziz and Bobby Jones.
