Hello and good morning fellow exfmer’s! I flew in last night and was greeted gingerly by the whole team. We had a little bonding time at Malaga’s Tapas & Bar in downtown Austin. I would highly recommend heading there for the extensive choice of tapas and ten page wine list filled with delicious Spanish wines.
After our bellys had their fill we headed over to see the Beach Fossils as well as some Diamond Rings and don’t forget to throw some RJD2 into that mix, just for good measure.
The last day of the Accelerator Competition is today. We have some stiff competition in the music and technology sector, but nothing we can’t handle. Judges will choose the winner this afternoon so keep your fingers crossed for us.
After the competition, there is tons of fun to be had. Below is a list of events you might see us at today. Keep an eye out for a motley cru wearing black exfm t-shirts.
