[UK] Digital Mission returns for a second year to dispatch some the UK’s leading digital/tech companies to the US.
Organised by Chinwag and UK Trade & Investment (UKTI), 39 ‘digital’ SMEs have been selected to attend South by South West interactive (SXSWi), the well regarded conference for interactive media which takes place in Austin, Texas. This year’s event runs from the 11-17th of March.
Established in 1994, SXSWi provides an opportunity for the Digital Mission companies to attend hundreds of conference sessions and networking events. It’s also a great chance to formally and informally showcase new products amongst a vocal and early adopting crowd – Twitter, for example, is known to have first gained traction amongst the digerati at SXSWi.
Digital Mission received over 120 submissions and the eventual winners were selected by “an advisory board of industry experts drawn from the UK community including: VC’s, export specialists, legal experts, journalist and industry pundits.”
Here’s the full list of companies that have been picked.
