Tech Idea to Tech Startup presented by the Austin Forum

April 9 @ 6:15 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

It is easy to get excited about the possibility of starting a successful tech company—especially in Austin—and to dream about possibilities of becoming a household name or being acquired by the Googles or Apples of the tech world. However, turning a great tech idea into a viable tech company with impact and success requires more than an idea and hard work. It also requires a comprehensive business plan, sufficient funding, an effective development team, great marketing and sales staff, intellectual property protection, effective management, careful accounting, and of course, customers. So, while most tech company founders’ success stories start with an idea, a community need, or a pivot from another venture, these success stories depend on much more than that initial idea/need.

Join us for a special Austin Forum event to learn it takes to build on a great tech idea and launch a great tech company. We will have experienced speakers and panelists from incubators, venture capital funding firms, IP firms, accounting firms, and more, all sharing their expertise and lessons learned, and answering your questions.
