Powershifters at 3 Day Startup Austin

Last month we participated in our first 3 Day Startup event that took place at Capital Factory. It was their largest event yet, and we captured some of our favorite moments and shared them here. Feel free to send us more memories from the event in the comments section below or contact us on Twitter and Facebook.

Logan Crable, a member of our marketing team, compiled video taken from the kickoff meeting and the ceremony at the end. A few members of the Powershift leadership team can also be spotted in the clips such as the Chairman and CEO, Steve Papermaster, Principal, Steve Guengerich, and Director of Marketing, Christa Freeland.

Twitter Contest

3 Day Startup Austin participants were entered into the Powershift Social Media contest by tweeting us what they were learning while building companies throughout the weekend. We did a random drawing at the end where students had a chance to win some fun gift cards. A few of our favorite tweets:
