Austin Tech Happy Hour

Since 2007 the Austin Tech Happy Hour has been the place for the emerging technology community to relax and network with each other. Come and meet the people you've friended, added, and twittered, discuss current technology innovations, and perhaps even find a candidate to add to your team!

Next Event

December 4th at The Dogwood

6pm - 8pm

When you feel the chill in the air, you know the end of the year is approaching. We are kicking off the holiday party season with our December 4th happy hour at The Dogwood. Come celebrate a fantastic year for the Austin technology community with a frosty beverage and some great networking.

There are a limited number of free tickets available, then a bigger batch of early bird specials, and finally a pre-registration discount. If you miss all of those, you can pay the full price of $10 at the door. This event is at a bar, so you must be 21+ to get in. Every person that attends will receive two drink tickets.

Sponsor

Phoenix Staff is an IT recruiting firm that staffs key roles in companies ranging from the help desk to a CTO/CIO – being high touch, low volume affords us the opportunity to truly manage that wide range. The core of people we place fall into the category of “senior” in their chosen profession - again this is achieved by our high touch, low volume approach. They are the best in their chosen area of expertise and when they aren’t actively looking, they are ready with a referral. What exactly does high touch mean? Simply put, we are the company that follows-up.

With venues like the CIO breakfast, our alignment in education and our ability to connect with the folks who people consider the “center of the Oracle universe or .NET universe or Linux universe” we are able to connect and, more importantly for you, get connected, quickly to those people who are looking. That allows us to be very specific in our attention for our clients and candidates. Instead of providing a client with 15 resumes to review, we are able to spend the necessary time with the people behind the resume to determine the best fit. Given the chance to prove that this is how we operate, we very quickly become the exclusive providers to our clients.

It's at the center of Austin's entrepreneurial scene - it's a great opportunity to get out of the office, meet new people, reconnect with those you've been meaning to see, and exchange ideas over a tasty beverage.

I look forward to the happy hour as a great way to keep a pulse on what's happening in Austin's startup scene. Always a welcoming environment and good turnout of founders, investors and those active in our tech community.

Austin Tech Happy Hour is the place I go to see the mover's and shaker's who don't show up anywhere else. If you're only going to one happy hour this month, Tech Happy Hour should be it.

David Altounian

A great place to reconnect with old business contacts and make new ones. A mixing of entrepreneurs, engineers, investors, marketing and others interested in the high tech scene in the Central Texas area in a casual, fun environment. I try to attend them whenever I can.

The happy hour runs from 6pm - 8pm on the day of the event, although we find that there are still over 100 people at the venue even at 9pm at night. You will have plenty of time to meet our guests.

Each happy hour we feature a small number of emerging technology companies who are allowed to demonstrate beta-level ideas and concetps, and soon-to-be-released products in order to get feedback and exposure to key technology executives.

You receive a six foot table and a place to hang a banner right behind your table. Placement is right at the front where all our guests arrive. It's the perfect arrangement to meet and interact with our attendees.

 Shared Sponsorship

We allow a maximum of two sponsors per event, who are not industry competitors. We strive for balance in the marketing presence of each company when it comes to marketing materials, giveaways, or promotional products at the event.

 Exclusive Sponsorship

An exclusive sponsorship gives you the freedom to "make the event your own." We'll work closely with you on those special touches for the event that will make it a unique, branded experience for your company.
