I’m not kidding this just happened to me: this morning, last day of SXSW Interactive 2012, I get an urgent plea from a friend helping a friend who’s “PR firm dropped the ball” b/c the client was ticked no one wrote about them yet, and they needed to call in some favors, get some coverage. This client launched at SXSW (and I’m not making this up): a Smartphone app that’s a free mobile guide for events, complete with location based mapping and social media integration. iPhone only now, but coming soon for iPad, Android.

My prediction going into the weekend was that SpareFoot would repeat this year in the Austin Startup Games. If you’re not familiar with the games, they pit teams from Austin startups against each other in such prestigious events as flip cup, foosball, and beer pong. The real winners at this event are the charities, as each team is playing for their favorite charitable organization. As the top company in this year’s Austin Startup Games, SpareFoot picked up a $23,000 check for Kure It. To date, SpareFoot has contributed $43,500 in Startup Games prizes to Kure It.
SpareFoot, which operates the country’s largest online marketplace for self-storage, is hosting an open house this month to recruit team members for its Austin call center, whose staff will nearly double in size by this summer.
