Thank you to Capital Factory for sponsoring the Austin Startup Meetup. Capital Factory is the center of gravity for entrepreneurs in Texas. They meet the best entrepreneurs in Texas and introduce them to their first investors, employees, mentors and customers. To sign up for a Capital Factory coworking membership, click here.

First timers, please note:
• Capital Factory is in the OMNI building at the intersection of 7th Street and Brazos St. The building has entrances on 3 streets (7th St, Brazos St and 8th St). You can enter from any street. Do not be surprised to see a hotel inside the building. The elevators are in the middle of the lobby. 
• Please check the event page for the details on the event room and which floor that is on. The event venue may change depending the availability and number of people attending, so always check the event page for the correct information. If it is on any floor other than the 1st, please read the note about the elevators below.
• The elevators may be confusing for first-timers. Each elevator is marked by an alphabet (A-F) that sticks above the corresponding elevator. Each elevator also has a touch panel to select the floor. Just select the floor you need to go to on any touch panel and it will show on the panel which elevator (A/B/C, etc.) is ready to go up to that floor. Just walk in to that elevator and get off where the doors open which will be the floor you selected in the panel earlier.
• Feel free to walk in at any time during the event. We understand that people are busy and may not be able to make it to the events in time.
• If in doubt, always ask the people at the front desk (on any floor) for help.
