Look at all these Philly companies going to SXSW

Might it be the biggest Philly contingent to date? We'll be in Austin to cover it.

Every year we do a roundup of Philly companies going to South by Southwest, the major Austin music and tech festival. This year, there’s a massive amount.

That’s in large part due to the SXSW Philly effort, organized by a crew of Philly technologists, including Philly Startup Leaders organizer Yuval Yarden and RECPhilly’s Dave Silver. See the list, provided by Yarden, below.

For the first time, we’re going too. We (and when we say “we,” it means this reporter and editorial director Chris Wink (EIC Zack Seward will be holding down the fort in Philly)) will be hosting a Tomorrow Tour event and reporting on companies from all five Technical.ly markets, but of course, we’ll have our closest eye on Philly. Do us a favor and tweet at us to let us know who we should pay attention to.
