It may seem early to be thinking about next year’s SXSW, but the panel picking process is already getting started. From now until September 4, the public can vote on over 4,000 potential panels for next year’s SXSW agenda. The team at Engine has submitted several proposals that we think will make for fascinating and informative conversation at the intersection of technology, startups, and policy. Plus, we’ve proposed a panel on how to launch a nonprofit organization like Engine. Help us make sure these panels get picked by voting for them today. You’ll need a SXSW account, and then you can vote for other great panels you’d like to see as well.
Last year, Engine discussed the “Politics of Innovation” with Techstars, Senator Jerry Moran, and Representative Kyrsten Sinema.
We hope to see you again in 2016!
