The Tuesday Keynote at the inaugural event will be none other than Steve Case:
Steve Case, one of America’s best-known and most accomplished entrepreneurs and philanthropists, and a pioneer in making the Internet part of everyday life, will deliver the Tuesday, August 13 Keynote for SXSW V2V.
Recently called “one of the nation’s greatest entrepreneurs” by CNBC, Steve Case is Chairman and CEO of Revolution, Co-Founder of America Online and Chairman of The Case Foundation.
Given that he is one of the first interwebz entrepreneurs, he is a very appropriate choice.

SXSW V2V is hitting the road this summer to meet up with entrepreneurs, digital creatives and tech professionals from around the country who want to share a drink, mingle, and learn more about what SXSW has planned for its first-ever event in Las Vegas this August. The drinks are on us!
We start out in San Francisco on Monday, May 20. On Monday, June 1, we jump over to the East Coast to hang out in Brooklyn. After that, it’s back over to the West Coast on Monday, June 17 for a gathering in Los Angeles. We round out our journey in Washington DC on Monday, July 1.
Stay tuned right here for details about how you can join up with us in one of these cities. And don’t forget that you can save $255 off the walk up rate by registering before May 24, 2013.
We highly recommend these meetups if you can make them. We attend the SXSW Interactive one every year and always make connections prior to the conference. It’s a great way to connect, reconnect, or even just learn more about what’s coming.
SXSW V2V will feature keynotes, panels, mentors, workshops and an exciting new 20-minute solo presentation program called 20/20 Vision.
Exclusive to SXSW V2V, 20/20 Vision will feature intense 20-minute presentations from established business and entrepreneurial voices, as well as up-and-coming creative visionaries. Located in one room, and spanning the length of the conference, this shorter format will allow audiences to experience a wide range of differing viewpoints and ideas from the people who are shaping the future.
Panels and Workshops
At SXSW V2V, skilled panel and workshop moderators will guide 3 speakers through 60-minutes of in-depth discussion (and sometimes heated debate) on topics that are specifically chosen to give entrepreneurs vital insight and information.
Mentors and Coaches
No matter where in the process your idea may be – conception, gathering talent, bootstrapping, stage one (or two) funding – the advice and counsel of those who have trod that path before is invaluable. SXSW V2V seeks to connect entrepreneurs with experienced mentors and coaches who can help them take their idea to the next level.
Everyone is still looking back at SXSW, and deciding their personal highlights. I’m sure we’ll get to the Baby! team’s memories in the near future, but for now… how about the best guitar moments at SXSW Music?
It’s worth repeating that yes, it is actually possible to see bands play non-stop and around the clock for the entire week of SXSW. Perhaps not if you wanted to emerge with your feet, liver, ears, and brain intact, but you could do it. Or, you can remain unscathed, save your health, and just read about eight of the best players we saw this year.
But which eight are they? Find out at Premier Guitar (but we’re glad to see Marnie Stern is on the list).
If you tuned in to the temporary ‘pop-up’ radio station IHeartAustin on 103.1 FM during SXSW, they you might want to return your radio back to the frequency. News reaches us (from All Access) that Clear Channel are going to carry on the broadcast even though SXSW is over for 2013.
103.1 IHeartAustin provides a variety of emerging music to our listeners and by keeping this format thriving, it will help to keep the spirit of the Austin music festivals alive 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
A quick heads up during the holiday weekend, but NPR’s 100 Bands from SXSW collection remains free to downlaod, but you only have until April 4th to grab the archive file with all the MP3′s in it.
Handpicked from among thousands of artists, this genre-traversing playlist picks highlights, discoveries and future thrills from this year’s festival — and, for the next 30 days, it’s available for free download in its entirety, as one 813 MB zip file, right here. Of course, for those without that much hard-drive space, you can download each song individually, as well as stream The Austin 100 on this page and through NPR Music’s various mobile devices.
