Austin Chamber Announces 2012 “A List” Winners

The Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce yesterday recognized 28 innovative technology start-ups as members of The Chamber’s 2012 A-List at a ceremony at Capital Factory. Recognition as an A-List Company is intended to increase the visibility of some of Austin’s great regional technology startups seeking – and deserving – funding. This prestigious list, now in its second year, is a concept derived from Leonardo DiCaprio’s film production company, which since 2005 has successfully sought great screenplays in need of producing. As with 2011, The Chamber’s Tech Partnership called on investors for their shortlist of companies they deemed eligible for inclusion on the A-List.

“Austin is rich with innovative startups that are primed for growth and simply need exposure and, most importantly, capital, to transform potential into reality,” said Susan Davenport, Senior VP of Global Technology Strategies for the Austin Chamber. “From big data to diagnostics to gaming, Austin’s entrepreneurial ecosystem has never been stronger, and the A-List is intended to spotlight the 35 Central Texas tech companies poised to make their mark. In turn, the region’s ability to attract and retain top tech companies and talent should only be enhanced.”
