Check out the the Lean Startup Bundle from AppSumo

By Garret Heaton | 4 years ago | 0 Comments

Last year at SXSW we spread the word about HipChat by giving away a ton of tshirts and meeting as many people as possible. This year we’ve partnered with AppSumo to offer 6 months of free HipChat to new users who purchase the Lean Startup Bundle for SXSW ($99). The bundle includes deals on almost 30 other web services, including Twilio, SauceLabs, and LessAccounting which we use to run HipChat.

So go check it out. We’d love to help your new startup succeed.

Back from SXSW, deep in the heart of Texas

We just got back from the South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive conference in Austin, TX. If you aren’t familiar with SXSW, it’s a jam packed weekend of panels, parties, great food, and a rare opportunity to hang out with fellow techies in real life. Here are some of the great people we met while giving out the very popular HipChat t-shirts.

This is the third year I’ve been to SXSW. Over the years I’ve noticed an increasing presence of large companies. They’ve discovered that it’s THE place to see and be seen. This, of course, means that all of the actually interesting people will stop attending. If you’ve wanted to attend SXSW but haven’t yet, I’d do it soon. If you’re from a big company trying to be cool, SXSW is played out. Don’t go.
