“We are bringing the new digital age to SXSW 2018”

“SXSW 2018 is a mélange of innovation for those who are willing to think outside the box. It is difficult to classify this event, for it is more than just a festival for music, film, and technology. By meshing all these fields together, it forces the participant to realize that new, rich ideas emerge when concepts cross multiple boundaries.” NBCNews

Is SXSW effective? We have different success stories and you may have heard of a few, such as Twitter, Foursquare, Gamesalad, Foodspotting.  

Foursquare started to build his brand in 2008, but they have all ready for their launch in the festival SXSW in 2009. They didn’t know if the people would like their idea or understand them, but they finally accepted foursquare, and thanks to SXSW they reached their goals, nowadays Foursquare is recognized by many.

 Another business like Foodspoting is an app that can rate different dishes, where you can recommend meals to others. How it began the story of Foodspotting?  It started with a trip to Japan, Alexa Andrzejewski noticed that people took pictures of their food, but she asks herself where do all these images go.

So when she got back home in San Francisco, they didn’t have any idea how to recognize the dishes that she took photos of, and that’s when she came up with the idea to create an app.  She joined up with Ted Grubb one of the first engineers of Get Satisfaction, an app of food. Both created “Foodspotting,” Foodspotting launched SXSW 2010, with an application for iPhone, now they have an app for android too.
