Great Vegas Tech Events During CES 2017

One of the great advantages of living in Las Vegas is that everyone you could ever want to meet for your business comes to Las Vegas sooner or later. Ok, maybe not everyone, but pretty close. One example of this is the 170,000 people that attend CES each year in Las Vegas. That’s the perfect opportunity for startup companies to meet with people who are in town for the event.

This year is no different and even if you’re not attending the CES conference itself, there are a whole group of events you can attend. Many are hosted by Vegas Tech companies and community organizations. Here’s a look at a few of them you might want to check out:

GO-NV Highway for Innovation – Tuesday Jan 3, 2017 from 2-6 PM at the RedFlint Experience Center

Tech Debut (Formerly Startup Debut) – Tuesday Jan 3, 2017 from 8-11 PM at Mandalay Bay (Press Only, but Tech Companies Can Sponsor if there are still slots available)

Startup Night in Downtown Vegas (Tech.co) – Wednesday Jan 4, 2017 at Gold Spike

CES Smart Cities Happy Hour – Thursday Jan 5, 2017 from 6-10 PM at UNLV Drones and Autonomous Systems Lab

Startup Grind with Robert Scoble and Shel Israel – Saturday Jan 7, 2017 at 6 PM at Private Residence (Henderson)

I’m sure there are plenty more, but those are some of the big ones I know about. We’ll see you all out at various CES events!

SXSW Accelerator Applications Due

On the heels of the great SXSW V2V Las Vegas announcement, I wanted to also let those Las Vegas startup companies know about the SXSW Accelerator event that happens at the main SXSW event in Austin.

SXSW Accelerator returns for its fifth edition to showcase some of the web’s most exciting innovations. The event provides an outlet for companies to present their new online entertainment or gaming products, social media / networking technologies, or mobile, news, music, or health technology to a panel of industry experts, early adopters, and representatives from the angel / VC community.

Past judges have included Tim Draper of DFJ, Chris Hughes of Facebook and Jumo, Paul Graham of Y Combinator, Craig Newmark of Craiglist, Robert Scoble of Rackspace and Scobleizer, Jeff Pulver of 140 Conference, Chris Shipley of Demo and Guidewire, and Tom Conrad of Pandora to name a few. The event does a great job highlighting the technology market’s most impressive new innovations. You may remember that startup companies like Twitter and Foursquare claim SXSW as key to the launch of their products. I’m honored to be part of the SXSW Accelerator board and I can tell you the names they have involved this year are just as exciting.

The application deadline is Friday, November 9, and the event itself will be March 11-12, 2013 in Austin, TX. You can find more information and apply at the SXSW Accelerator page or at the music technology accelerator page.

Let me know that you’ve applied and I wish you the best with this! Plus, I’m sure that Gabe and SxVegas would be really excited to hear that a Vegas Tech company was going to be part of the SXSW Accelerator.
