Digiday is at SXSW. We’ll profile startups that solve real problems for brands, agencies and publishers; report the scuttlebutt outside the convention hall; and shoot video interviews with digital media leaders. Our coverage is made possible through the sponsorship of Vitrue, the social media management platform.
PepsiCo is a major supporter of the startup scene. It’s one of the top sponsors of SXSW, setting up shop in the convention center with a “Pepsi Central Station,” expanding its PepsiCo 10 startup program to India and Brazil and holding an “un-conference” to discuss how companies can operate like startups.
