Official badged SXSW event

As the most successful startup meetup in Austin, SXSW had approached us to hold a session about how to start and run a meetup. Since this is an official SXSW event, you need a badge which is out of our control.

Perhaps you already have a meetup, searching for ways to grow the member base; perhaps you are planning on founding a meetup group. Let's get together and discuss what makes a meetup successful and drives members.

We will be exchanging experiences on how to identify the components necessary to found, grow, and operate a successful technology meetup group:

- How do you get started?

- How do you find members?

- Finding a winning recipe.

- How to find a venue?

- How to finance your meetup?

- Opportunities to profit making?

- How to find and organize helpers?

Stefan is the co-organizer of the Co-founders Austin Meetup, which grew within 4 years to 1,900 members - one of the largest in the US. The Co-founders Meetup is a non-profit monthly pitch and networking event driving each month 100+ co-founders to come together. Out of the experience with the Co-founders Meetup, we built the TechMap, a free targeted member platform, available to meetups globally.

We cannot get you a free badge, but perhaps we can answer your questions:
