OutboundEngine helps small business owners market themselves by doing the work for them. They create original content for their clients, automate their email campaigns, update their social media profiles and help them grow their businesses and drive long-term value for their customers.
 
What to expect: Tacos, burgers and booze. Need we say more? Crawl your way to the OutboundEngine office to enjoy free food, drinking games, music, snazzy swag and, of course, one of the best views the city can offer. We have a hilarious election theme in store, so be sure to swing by and cast your vote!

Recent News: It has been a year of incredible growth for OutboundEngine, complete with Series C funding, a new beautiful office and the hiring of SVP of Strategic Sales Kevin McKeown.

Responses from Katie Mackay,  Recruiting & Event Coordinator 

The team at Duo Security developed a cloud-accessible security provider that protects large companies from user, data and application breaches, credential theft and account takeover. 

What to expect: Stop by Duo’s office and meet our team! You’ll learn how Duo’s making security easy and effective, what’s fueling our exceptional revenue growth (300 percent YOY!), and what it’s like to support the missions of companies like NASA, Facebook & Etsy. Also, beer and snacks!

Recent news: Recognized as one of the “50 Highest Rated Cloud Companies To Work For” and “18 Best Cloud Computing Startups To Work For” 

We geek out on trying things that have never been done before. That inspired “Duo in Space” — our quest to become the first two-factor authentication in space.  

 

Responses from Chris Marsh, PR & Social Manager

Since 2005, Modernize has continued to build efficiency and focused-based home empowerment tools through solar technology, energy efficient windows, heating and cooling systems and roofing. 

What to expect: Join us on the 4th floor of 804 Congress Ave to catch a glimpse of life at Modernize. Treat yourself to free beer, wine and tasty hors d'oeuvres, grab some swag, and listen to some live music on our outdoor patio. 

Recent news: 2016 is shaping up to be a big year for Modernize. We've been recognized as an Austin A-List award winner, one of the Best Places to Work in town in addition to making the Inc. Magazine's Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies.

Broadleaf Commerce joined the community in 2008 and builds B2B and B2C e-commerce solution platforms. They became the first company to develop an open source, enterprise-ready, e-commerce solution using the Spring Framework. 
 
What to Expect: Visit our Austin hub for cold beer, swag, shirts and a look behind the scenes at Rick Perry’s former campaign headquarters.

Responses from Sarah Lawton Hawkins, Austin Community Manager

Industrious recently joined the co-working community in Austin in the new high-rise at 5th and Colorado. 

What to expect: A beautiful, sophisticated office space. Come join us for margaritas!

Recent news: We're a national coworking company providing hospitality in the place you least expect it — at work. We're in 12 locations around the country and we're expanding rapidly with our recent $37 million Series B round of financing. 
 

 

Responses from Rob Bari, Director of Marketing

Peddle provides an efficient way to sell cars online. Sellers describe their vehicle and are presented with an offer and the option to sell it instantly by having it towed away or to drive it to one of their locations. Alternatively, sellers can list their car for sale to Peddle’s nationwide network of car buyers at their own asking price.

What to expect: Check out the award winning Peddle office on the 3rd floor, then join us up on the 4th floor for a roof deck party overlooking 6th street. We’ll have snacks and plenty of beer on tap.

Hiring news: We’re currently interested in hiring a Business/Data Analyst and a Customer Support Agent. 

 

Responses from Nina Ho, Manager of Strategic Partnerships

Jackrabbit Mobile has worked in mobile technology since the launch of the app store. Their team delivers native mobile application design, and development for iOS and Android, along with mobile web.

What to expect: For the Jackrabbit Mobile Startup Crawl stop, we'll have libations and snacks, a drone race course, augmented reality cornhole, a virtual reality set up, and a taco piñata (taco-shaped not filled). Plus the team's favorite food truck, Delicious Thai, will be on site and giving away free food for the first 50 people.  

Recent news: Our innovation lab created an emotion and facial recognition app for retail. Here's a 50-second video of the tech. 

 

While the above tech startups host home-based events, Capital Factory will hold its annual giant party this year at the 800 Congress Avenue event space (formerly at the Omni Atrium). Sign up here if you haven't yet.
