AUTMHQ UPDATES Hola & Hello, Paty!

As we enter the month of May, we realize how quickly time is passing and how much we have accomplished! In terms of events, we have already held around eight in four months, including ReThink Austin 2022, which was a one-day occurrence. We are soon presenting Day in the Life, Horizons, and AUTM Talks by AUTMHQ, as well as other seasonal events. Austin Urban Technology Movement (AUTMHQ) hosts numerous events throughout the year to promote networking. In a world where virtual interactions are so meaningful, hybrid events are reaching out to a global community that will benefit from meeting contacts in the same field and sharing common interests. Networking has a significant impact on the tech industry these days because it demonstrates how important technology has become in our daily lives for communicating and interacting with one another. In addition, we have guests who are experts in their fields and therefore provide us with information about how the industry is doing these days. This encourages all of our attendees to continue their education and stay current on these topics, as the tech world offers a plethora of opportunities. Remember that AUTMHQ events are extremely valuable because our attendees learn a lot from our panelists and speakers; thus, you must stay up to date to be a part of these fun and exciting celebrations of knowledge! Paty Sesma Vice President of Marketing and Communications at AUTMHQ

Will Tennessee become the next tech hub for Web3 entrepreneurs?

When you think about Tennessee, you’re more likely to be thinking country music, barbecue, and bourbon than crypto, blockchain, and Web3. The state legislature has plans to change that. Tennessee just passed a bill that could help it become a leader in states providing a home to entrepreneurs who want to set up a unique kind of company that uses the blockchain to automate its decision-making. It’s called a DAO.

More of that in a moment. First, a few definitions.
