Hey Startup Tribe! Come join your fellow tribe mates as they head to SXSW in Austin, Texas during the beginning of Spring Break. SXSW (, often referred to as "South By") is a music, film and interactive festival, and I'm organizing ticket purchases specifically for SXSW Interactive (March 11-15). Here are the top 10 reasons to check it out: Long story short, this is where all of the hot startups host parties and a lot of the great networking happens.  I've had many entrepreneurs reference the event as one of the best ways to meet people in the industry.  

Alumni: We know you're going to be there, and we'd love to meet up.  Feel free to sign up through the same form.

We are using the hashtag #HBSSXSW on twitter.

SXSW Interactive tickets for the general public are currently $675, but through Feb 11th you can buy a student ticket for $450. Depending on the size of our group, we may be able to get the ticket price down to $360. I will take the lead in coordinating the group ticket purchases for those of you interested in the SXSW Interactive tickets.

If you want to be part of the group ticket purchase, please fill out the Google form below, no later than February 4th.  Also, you can use this link to share travel plans with the group. I won't be coordinating hotels, but there are many available rooms which can be booked through SXSW (  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at csamanian [at] mba2012.
