Try and say that 10 times real fast! AustinInno is getting ready for Tech Madness, a March Madness style tournament of 64 Austin Texas Tech Companies (there I go with the tongue twisters again). This isn’t the run of the mill, advertise with AustinInno or kiss Brent Wistrom’s ass and you’re guaranteed a spot on the list. This is a true peer competition where the Austin tech community votes for one another. There’s no time better for this than a week before that same tech community shines world wide for South By Southwest Interactive and the world famous ATX Startup Crawl.

The AustinInno folks have narrowed all the nominations down to 150 preliminary names. On Thursday March 2 at Buffalo Billiards, at 6PM, the tech community is invited to help narrow that list down to the 64 teams that are in the Tech Madness tournament. They are looking to identify which companies the Austin startup community thinks will grow the most in the next five years.  Austin startup community members vote their chosen companies onward until there’s a final four and of course a champion.

This is awesome for the Austin startup community, but revel in all that for just a minute. AustinInno narrowed the line up down to 150 and then the community narrows it down to 64. That means there’s a shitload of startups in Austin.

Here’s that list of 150, and if you’re in the Austin area make sure you get to the final bracket party on March 2nd, and of course SXSW Interactive March 10th.
