Mixergy SXSW Live Bonanza
Friday, March 11, 2011 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (CST)
Who: Entrepreneurs, startups, press, lurkers, and ambitious upstarts.
How: Beer, awesome interviews and amazing people.
Think of it as the Mixergy you love...live and in person...with top interviewees...and drinks.
Making it possible
Three people offered to sponsor the event and make it possible.
Ben Welch-Bolen, CEO of Site5 Hosting, is a guy I personally asked over dinner to do a Mixergy interview but he refused because he's not ready to reveal how well Site5 is doing. (If you come, please help me persuade him.)
Josh Kaufman is the author of Personal MBA, the Amazon.com Business Management Bestseller. After spending 5 minutes on the phone with him, I practically begged Josh to teach me. I think you'll want to grab his book.
Todd Garland, the Founder of BuySellAds.com, bought my last sponsorship spot. How fitting! Did you know there's a page on his site where you can see how much ad money he generates for every one of the publishers in his network? Before you buy or sell an online ad, check this page out.
Credit where it's due
The idea for this event wasn't mine. These two guys cooked it up and are helping me put it together.
Damon Clinkscales - a software developer and community shepherd in Austin who is also a huge Mixergy fan. He loves to bring people together.
