Digging the Vibe at SXSW
Greetings from Austin! I’m here for the SXSW conference on behalf of the startup I’m co-founding, digthevibe. I’m incredibly lucky that my employer, Altimeter Group, has been so supportive throughout the pre-launch/funding phase of our development, but I’m also really excited to take a week of vacation and focus 100% of my energy on digthevibe.
While here, I’m going to be attending a number of sessions and will be live-blogging them on digthevibe’s blog. Sessions only convey a small portion of the value that SXSW has to offer, so I’ll also be attending a number of events, parties, tweetups, and networking like a mad man.
If you want to connect this week, there are a number of ways to get my attention. You can email me at zak (at) digthevibe.com, tweet me at @Zak_Kirchner, find me on foursquare or write on my Facebook wall.
Please also take a second to “like” digthevibe on Facebook. I’ll write a full post explaining what I’m doing at digthevibe and how we’re going to change the world, but for now you’ll just have to track me down and hear the pitch in person. One of my top goals for the weekend is to refine our story and pitch for potential investors.
Speaking of, we are looking for funding… a lot of funding. digthevibe is a very ambitious idea with a potentially explosive business model and we’re going to need a lot of money to pull it off. If you know any investors who I should talk to, I would love to meet them.
