During SXSW Interactive, I had a chance to catch up with Carolyn Harrold, Head of Programming with SXSW Eco – a sister conference to the main SXSW where I am with many of Israel’s startups.

Later this year from October 5 – 7 SXSW Eco is being held in Austin and represents a wonderful opportunity to showcase some of Israel’s best startups and innovations focused on technology and design that positively impacts society, the environment, and the economy.

If you’re a startup or VC involved in this space, you should really consider applying to speak, taking part in the Startup Showcase, and most of all, network and connect with potential investors (or co-investors) with similar interest and goals to make the world a better place.
