Free food, free drinks, and free music?
Team Austin is teaming up with Hubciti to throw The Takeaway Party, on November 4th, 2016. Spend your night with local artists, Mobley and Riders Against the Storm, all while supporting a good cause.
Founder, Reza Piri, sensed a void for young entrepreneurs in a city booming with opportunity, and so Team Austin was born to fill it.
“I got help with my business, there was no judgement on how old I was or how big my goals were, they were just here to help," said Shelbie Johansson, President of Moxie Social.
The nonprofit organization focuses on developing not only their members' businesses but also developing the members themselves. They strive to form connections, mentorships, and gain exclusive insight from Austin's most successful startup leaders and seasoned entrepreneurs.
But Team Austin took the organization one step further and started the Team Austin Foundation, a scholarship fund to support high-tech and entrepreneurial education for underrepresented communities.
"This is a way for our group to give back to the community and help people who wouldn't have the opportunity otherwise," Piri said.
All proceeds from The Takeaway Party are donated to the Team Austin Foundation. By participating in the raffle, you'll be sending three winners to attend programs at The Next Lab and Hack Reactor in 2017.
Raffle prizes include a trip to Europe with Globekick, a private dinner by Chef Andrew Stiver of Culinary Innovations, a SXSWi badge, and co-working space from atxFactory and Impact Hub.
Come support your Austin business community and don’t forget to RSVP for the event!
