Polaris Ventures is excited to announce that it will bring its spirit of “open source entrepreneurship” to SXSW 2011, by opening a special edition of Dogpatch Labs. On Sunday March 13 and Monday March 14 Dogpatch Labs Austin will open its doors to entrepreneurs needing a place to work and hang out. DPL Austin will be located at Treehouse Pub, 501 East 6th Street – right in the heart of SXSW action. Similar to Dogpatch in New York, Cambridge and San Francisco there will be free desks, WIFI, food, space for informal meetings and a special SXSW foosball room! So if you are in between sessions and need a place to get some work done and prefer not to be in your room, hotel lobby or coffee shop, sign up at for a spot at Dogpatch Labs.
We would like to invite any and all entrepreneurs who are working on interesting projects to signup and tell us about yourself and your company. While we do not have unlimited space we will try to accommodate as many entrepreneurs as possible.
Additionally, Peter Flint (@pflint), Mike Hirshland (@vcmike), Dave Barrett (@dbodbo) and myself (@ryanspoon) will be holding office hours at Dogpatch Labs and would be very interested in meeting with companies.
