Suitcase Startup episode 5: The pains of launching at SXSW

Suitcase Startup episode 5: The pains of launching at SXSW

Every two weeks, we’re following Chris Bradley in his Suitcase Startup mission, as he travels around his adopted home of London, armed only with a suitcase and a dream, meeting people who can help him launch his company, Publicate.

In episode 5 we join Chris and newly announced co-founder Anastasia Emmanuel at SXSW , where Publicate is trying to make a name for itself by talking to as many influencers as possible. There’s an interview with Robert Scoble lined up, a live video panel, and plenty of networking to be done – not to mention trying to get a press release out in sync with UK hours when they’re in a completely different timezone. And hey, what would SXSW be like without a little partying?

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.
