About TechMap

Our goal at TechMap is to bring the tech community across the US together, to create an ecosystem where they can be linked together. The TechMap provides a platform to newcomers, job seekers, investors and entrepreneurs discover and engage with a city's tech and startup ecosystem. We currently hold events in Austin and Chicago, but plan to expand to other cities across US as well. With a map of tech startups, co-working sites, investors, service providers and events we promise to give you a clear glance at a city's tech scene. Our events (Meetups, happy hours and Hackathons) as well as our weekly newsletter allows our members to keep in touch with other members of the community and get a sense of what is going on in their city.


Our flagship event CoFounders at TechMap, is a highly sought after monthly event in Austin, which provides a platform for Startup Co-founders to give short pitches/demos of their ideas infront of their peers. They get on spot feedback from a panel of experienced professionals on their pitches, and also get the opportunity to network with a range of professionals interested in their idea. Held on the 2nd Monday of every month, the Cofounders event has become something of an Austin institution. What makes The TechMap different is that we are purely focused on tech companies and startups, we are a highly curated version of LinkedIn for tech professionals and entrepreneurs.

“Bringing the tech community together.”
