What people are saying about The Austin Forum

Presenting at the Austin Forum was a fantastic opportunity to access a distinctive cross-section of Austin’s tech community that our team at the Austin Technology Incubator and CleanTX might not have otherwise reached. The audience was mixed, engaged, and interactive, and our work in clean technology in more broadly understood as a result. Thank you to the Forum team for the invitation and the opportunity!
–Kathleen Baireuther

Speaking at the Forum allowed us to directly speak to engaged, civic-minded individuals about our new municipal transportation policy initiative, MobilityATX. For an organization like Glasshouse Policy, a crowdsourced think tank that directly sources policy solutions from the general public, engaging such as audience is critical to our success.

I met some great people in the community who were doing some cool things that I may be incorporating into some of our future events.
