Angelhack Coming to Austin June, 2013

AngelHack organizes hackathon competitions for web developers and entrepreneurs, called AngelHacks, where they can learn developer tools, meet new friends, and receive funding and mentorship for their startup ideas. In 2013, AngelHack will organize 100 hackathons, bringing together 10,000+ developers in 50+ cities.  They now have extended their hackathons into a full blown accelerator.  Winners from each city are put through the AngelHack Accelerator Program, where they receive mentorship for 12 weeks before heading out to Silicon Valley for pitch practice and then to raise investment and potentially join incubators.  Their stated goal is "to be the largest funnel of seed-stage technical talent into incubators and investors around the world."

Damon Clinkscales is organizing the Austin event and Sam Decker is hosting it  at Mass Relevance scheduled for June 1 -2, 2013.   You can sign up here and with the discount code 'txenet', you can get 50% off of your ticket.

Damon said "we want to give developing teams in Austin a venue to showcase their get more exposure. I hope hackers, hustlers, and designers out there who have ideas of things they want to build will join us at Mass Relevance for the weekend."
