Austin Startup Week Sets Date In October

The organizers of this year's Austin Startup Week have set the date for the week long celebration of technology startups, saying that the second annual event is scheduled for October 8-12th. The group is looking to setup events all during the five days of Austin Startup Week, and says it's also looking for sponsors to help fly in developer, job seekers, and startups interested in relocating to Austin. Last year, Austin Startup Week had over 1,500 participants. The group says it wants to help people in the startup area learn from each other, meet some new people, and make awesome things happen.
