There are certain moments in life you know you will never forget. Finishing first at SXSW Eco was one of those moments. - Deane Little, New Sky Energy, Greentech Winner
Moving into its third year at SXSW Eco, Startup Central has become known as a place of discovery for the latest innovations in cleantech and social impact.
