Global crowdfunding platform Indiegogo is gearing up to head to Austin, Texas next week as part of the global SXSW 2014 blitz. They will be hosting multiple “Happiness Hours” and are asking friends and fans to swing by for a visit at the Indiegogo Tech Cafe where they will have free WiFI, food and of course drinks. Several popular, successful crowdfunders who used the Indiegogo site to raise funds will also be hanging around – including: Misfit Wearables, Breathometer, StickNFind and URB-E. Indiegogo has even posted a form to fill out to let them know you are heading their way.
SXSW started in 1987 began as music festival and has grown into a tech, film, music, digital, and just about everything else love-in where entrepreneurs, creative types and anyone interested, arrive every year to see what is new and hot in the creative world. Over 30,000 paying attendees showed up in 2013.
