AUTMHQ UPDATES Hola and Hello!

At this time of the year, we are starting to plan our Fall-Winter events. Here is when we start thinking about the best networking opportunities for our AUTMites. But, why is networking so important? Well, building relationships can be the catalyst factor to making significant progress in your career path as it brings interesting and relevant opportunities your way. Let me start with a simple but extremely valuable form of networking: LinkedIn. By using the connections on this platform, you can reach out to people you don't know for a referral or advice in fields or roles you are interested in. What a simple way to get noticed! Make sure you have a great public profile on your LinkedIn page. Austin Urban Technology Movement (AUTMHQ) provides excellent networking opportunities through our Day in the Life, Horizons, and AUTMTalks by AUTMHQ events. If you want to stay up to date on our upcoming discussions, please subscribe to our newsletter and YouTube channel, and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, of course, Twitter, and TikTok, and you won't miss out on any of these amazing networking opportunities hosted by AUTMHQ! We want to help you to build a great career in tech! Paty Sesma VP of MarCom at AUTMHQ

Your input is a key part of that process.

Design it! Move it! Prove it! ...WIN!

Energy Program for Innovation Clusters (EPIC) Prize Round 2. The Office of Technology Transitions EPIC Prize incentivizes incubators that implement high-impact ideas to support energy startups.

The Energy Program for Innovation Clusters (EPIC) Prize recognizes the nation’s most innovative incubators. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Technology Transitions (OTT), the EPIC Prize awards cash prizes to regional incubator teams that submit the most creative and impactful plans, then implement those plans to develop strong clusters, connections, and support for energy startups and entrepreneurs.

Technology startups often require more than just capital to launch, grow, and scale innovations. Incubators are crucial in providing entrepreneurs mentorship, technology validation, business development, connections to manufacturers, and more to strengthen the America’s clean energy future. The prize seeks to address a capital gap in supporting these critical organizations by providing funds to be applied where incubators need them most. Providing capital to enable creative, forward-thinking organizations is necessary to allow these groups to think more expansively about the role of incubators in the broader regional innovation and entrepreneurial ecosystem.
