This year at SXSW, one of our Global Partners, Sprint, is joining us at Startup Oasis to help you party and pitch!


Kickoff Party – Presented by Pinsight Media+ powered by Sprint

We’re kicking off Startup Oasis with one heck of a party, thanks to Pinsight Media+, a new mobile advertising platform powered by Sprint. We’ll have lots to drink, great food to order, fun swag, and much more. We’ll also be bringing you an awesome music act, The Bones of JR Jones. Come by at 8 when the party gets started and be prepared to go until 2! Register here!

Pitch Booth – Presented by Sprint Accelerator 

Get ready to give your best 60-second pitch in Sprint’s pitch booth! Hop on in and film yourself pitching for the world to see. Taken as an idea from the Grammy’s backstage vine mirror, we’ll be publishing your pitches to the world with one single click. Get great exposure by adding in your twitter handle and posting it – or send it to yourself for promotional material. All of this is thanks to Sprint’s Accelerator, located in Kanas City.

Sprint will also be participating in Office Hours if you want to book some one-on-ones, and Sprint execs will also be judging the Pitch Hour competitions happening in our space!For more information on what UP is doing at SXSW, check out Startup Oasis, powered by UP Global and the Kauffman Foundation. We’ll see you there March 7-9!
