An incubator of cutting-edge technologies and digital creativity, the Southwest by Southwest (SXSW®) features five days of compelling presentations and panels from the brightest minds in emerging technology, scores of exciting networking events hosted by industry leaders and an unbeatable lineup of special programs showcasing the best new websites, video games and startup ideas the community has to offer. From hands-on training to big-picture analysis of the future, SXSW Interactive has become the place to discover the technology of tomorrow today.

Since 1987, the event is a launching pad for new creative content. In 2015, more than 84,385 attendees experienced new media presentations, music showcases and film screenings that provide buzz-generating exposure for creators and compelling entertainment for audiences. Conference panel discussions present a forum for learning business activity thrives at the Trade Shows and global networking opportunities abound. Intellectual and creative intermingling among industry leaders continues to spark new ideas and carve the path for the future of each ever-evolving field, long after the events’ conclusion.

Expanding diversity and inclusion at SXSW is a very important part of our intentional strategy to increase authentic and natural diversity and inclusion throughout the innovation, entrepreneurship and investment ecosystems. Why? It’s simple.

SXSW shapes global narratives and perspectives; fosters authentic conversations and dialogue; and creates serendipitous moments and opportunities to connect with the leaders of tech, capital and culture.

Our thesis is simple.

Diversity SXSW and we will diversity the innovation, entrepreneurship and investment ecosystem for all.

To this end, our goal is to bring 500 of the brightest, diverse & inclusive innovative & entrepreneurial students from our nation's Historically Black Colleges & Universities to SXSW in 2017. Tell us more about you & your interest in sponsoring students and more.

Welcome to HBCU@SXSW.
