Mumbai, February 20th, 2017: Startup League, a startup support program launched by Radix, announced that early stage startups participating at SXSW 2017 can get 30% of their sponsorship cost reimbursed by applying for the Startup League program. Along with the cost benefit, the startups will also get global marketing and PR support as well as sponsored goodies branded with the participating startup’s logo, etc to distribute at SXSW.
Startup League was launched last year by Radix, the registry that owns a number of new domain extensions like .TECH, .STORE, .ONLINE and .SPACE. So far, 50 startups from all over the world have come on board and availed the unique benefits of this program for various tech fests such as TechCrunch Disrupt, SLUSH, Web Summit, CES, etc.
Speaking about the Startup League program, Sandeep Ramchandani, VP and Business Head of Radix, said, "Many startups can benefit greatly by just being present at the right place, at the right time. Startup League exists to empower startups to get to tech fests such as SXSW so they can showcase their products and grow their network within and outside their industry."
While the membership to Startup League is free of cost, participating startups need to have their official website hosted on any of the 8 exciting new domain extensions such as .ONLINE, .TECH, .STORE, .SPACE, .SITE, .PRESS, .HOST and .WEBSITE. With these new domains, a startup can name itself with a definitive domain extension that is memorable and a more natural fit to their industry. These new domain extensions make the website URL shorter by utilizing the extension to communicate what it is all about. For example, zero2infinity.space is a startup focused on outer space; edita.online is a marketplace for copywriting services powered by AI and eyeware.tech is a startup that works in the machine vision space. The new domain names are popular even for community driven platforms such as warwick.tech, a tech society for Warwick University.
Startup League has been empowering startups to be present at not only SXSW but also many other international tech fests. Talking about his experience of being part of Startup League, Peter Ruckaert, CEO, crowdbeamer.tech, said, "Startup League made our TechCrunch Disrupt SF experience better for us. The marketing aid and sponsorship is for real, and is a great push forward for any startup looking to exhibit at such events."
Startup League will be present at SXSW 2017. If you are looking for buying space at SXSW or for any other tech fests, reach out to the Startup League team at SXSW or at startupleague.online. To know more about Radix and its extensions, visita www.radix.website.
