March Startup Events Cont.

Were you able to make it to SXSW?  Don’t worry if not; there still a fair amount going on here in the city by the Bay for the rest of us.  The weather’s been beautiful, GDC was a lot of fun, and events are still taking off up and down the bay.  As always, let me know if you have an event you’d like to promote and I’ll try to get it included.
