This, of course, includes many of the industries that you might find at the SXSW Interactive Festival in Austin -- from sports, food, fashion and wearable tech to video games, health tech, hardware and software. But it also includes the industries at the core of SXSW: music and film.

We take this convergent nature of the program at V2V beyond the daytime panels, keynotes, mentor sessions and workshops and into the evening activities. Networking mixers and parties share the night with music showcases featuring up-and-coming bands and special film screenings tied to the daytime programming.

Basically, V2V offers a place for startups, entrepreneurs, artists and innovators across all creative industries to learn the skills and make the connections they need to turn their vision into a viable venture. Whether it's funding challenges, policy and regulation questions, social and cultural impact issues, tech development and design ideas, business strategy advice, or sources for creativity and inspiration, V2V has something to offer.

The next discount registration deadline is April 25. Register now to take advantage of all that this unique SXSW event has to offer and save.
