Why should you attend Birmingham Bound’s event at SXSW?

Imagine immersing yourself in an environment filled with creative energy, and you’re surrounded by trailblazers all gathered to celebrate
the power of achievement, support, and connection. This is your chance to be part of a community that’s shaping the future, one idea at a time. Maria Underwood, President of Birmingham Bound, feels that the city’s presence at SXSW is paramount in both celebrating and growing Birmingham’s tech ecosystem. “We could not be more excited to have a Birmingham house at SXSW this year, and to and
to highlight our city as the best place for startups. Birmingham originally got its name, The Magic City, for having the right ingredients to make steel,” she says. “Now, the tech ecosystem is reclaiming that phrase because we know we have the right ingredients to support the growth of founders. We’re excited to be leading a coalition of tech organizations in Birmingham to show founders at SXSW how our
obnoxiously supportive ecosystem will help them grow.”

Since its founding, SXSW has offered a diverse range of activities to suit every taste, interest, or need. Within this premier experience, Birmingham Bound’s event promises to be a standout by offering unique tech-related insights, engaging discussions, and unforgettable experiences that you won’t find anywhere else. In addition to entertainment showcasing the best of Birmingham and a look into the
success awaiting startup founders in the Magic City, you’ll be able to hear from high-level city officials who have a true understanding of how Birmingham facilitates a strong startup ecosystem. March 8th is stacked with a sampling of Southern hospitality in Arena Hall, where some of the city’s finest leaders, founders, and cultural connoisseurs serve an itinerary of must-see sessions. The whole
day is a highlight full of tech forays and giveaways, so start early with a drink and bite to eat while enjoying the beats from DJ Gina Tollese. Birmingham is a dining destination for foodies, and one of the city’s many James Beard nominees, Pizza Grace, will be offering cooking demos for those wanting to try the South’s premier pizza. Tech founder features, informative accelerator panels, and a festive fireside chat with local leaders will further showcase how these ecosystem builders and city officials from the Magic City family will help you grow your company faster, better, and with superior support. Keep your energy up all day with O’Henry’s coffee and their amazing conecuh biscuits, and then dance and sway the night away to the music of beloved Birmingham band, The Banditos.
