“As a volunteer member of the IEEE and President of the IEEE Standards Association, I've been impressed with Interprose's professionalism and their capabilities. They are phenomenal. I attended SXSWi 2013 expecting I was going to just moderate a panel. It turned out that because of Interprose, I met and collaborated with Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web. I also had interviews with the Washington Post, Forbes, Vocus and a photo shoot with Adweek. The exposure that the IEEE Standards Association received was more widespread than I had ever imagined. At SXSW, Interprose worked magic."Karen Bartleson, Senior Director of Community Marketing, Synopsys; President (2013-2014), IEEE Standards Association

The future of business will depend heavily on a new wave of innovative mobile communication platforms and applications, like China’s cutting-edge mobile platform, WeChat. However, these emerging platforms and applications also add up to a much more complex world for businesses. Smart phones, tablets, hybrid devices such as Windows Surface, and multiple environments including Android, Android China, Amazon, Facebook, and Apple’s iOS, as well as an ever-evolving merry-go-round of features, updates, and apps mean additional levels of multifaceted marketing. So, where should businesses start, and how can they guarantee that their budgets won’t disappear down the digital rabbit hole?
More than just music. More than just film. And more than just technology. SXSW is the crossroads of creativity, art, science and passion. Rather than having a bird’s-eye view from behind a monitor, Interprose took a truly interactive approach to the 2014 SXSW Interactive Festival in Austin, Texas—reporting from the events via social media and capturing the whole experience through the lens of a Polaroid High-def Professional Action Camera (and an iPhone).
I busily attended the trade show, sessions, panels, networking gatherings and, most importantly, nightly parties. But, among all the learning, collaboration and interaction, I discovered what I believe is SXSWi in its truest, most raw form: the SXSW 2014 Accelerator.
