UpCurve Cloud Prepares for 2012 SXSW Startup Crawl
UpCurve Cloud is participating in this year’s SXSW Startup Crawl on March 8. The Third Annual Startup Crawl is organized by Capital Factory and brings together more than 20 start-ups in the Austin metro area. This is an interactive event from 4pm-10pm where guests can enjoy beer, snacks, games, and contests with local start-up businesses. This is the first year that the Startup Crawl will be an official SXSW event. So far over 4,000 RSVPs have been confirmed.
This will be UpCurve Cloud's first year participating in this kick-off event and we couldn’t be more excited. Not only will this be a fun way to interact with customers, but it is also a great way to recruit additional employees, meet potential clients and customers, and get to know other new and innovative companies. We also get a chance to show off our new office!
UpCurve Cloud is a consulting, custom development, and integrations technology firm focus on implementing and deploying Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Systems. Our core values are to help other businesses be successful through the use of technology and to have fun while doing so. Hosting our own event during SXSW Interactive signifies the growth we’ve seen in our own company and the growth within the CRM industry.
A key factor in participating in the Startup Crawl is to stand out. What better way to make a lasting impression and get people engaged than a friendly skeeball competition? In order to participate, attendees must register in our CRM system so we may keep track of their skeeball score. They will also be asked to follow us on Twitter so we may tweet at the winner’s of the tournament. Two Amazon.com gift cards will be will be awarded to the two highest scorers.
It’s not a party without some lively spirits. Keep in mind this is a fun and interactive festival. UpCurve Cloud will be providing kegs of local beer for our guests. In addition to the skeeball competition, we also have a Nerf gun station, a ping pong table, and our in-office pinball machine.
Registered guests are welcome to come on by, have a beer, meet the team, and play a round of skeeball! Looking forward to kicking off SXSW interactive with a great group of neighboring start-ups.
