Millennials are known as the Startup Generation for a reason. They’re innovative, entrepreneurial and smart and one of the reasons we’re gearing up to launch our third Startup University here at Ogilvy.  Startup University is a half-day of marketing workshops where select entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to work with the top marketers at Ogilvy on their startup’s brand, marketing, and business strategies. We match our Ogilvy experts based on their background and expertise to the entrepreneur’s individual venture - a truly customized workshop. 
This is a free workshop with no strings attached, but there is a short application process (see above).
DEADLINE TO APPLY: Friday, November 23.

Sending so much love to our city. The photos and aftermath are heartbreaking but we can’t help but be uplifted by the amount of love, hope and camaraderie we’ve seen from our neighbors, coworkers and loved ones. It truly is one of the finest cities in the world and we consider ourselves very lucky to be here.

Everyone wants a piece of the pie

Bringing the legendary Austin festival to the bright lights of Vegas, South by Southwest announced SXSW V2V today. The festival brings days of panels, workshops, speakers, coaching programs and pitch competitions to budding innovators and entrepreneurs. Given the number of startups launched by millennials, we can’t help but love the push toward cultivating a generation of entrepreneurs.

Is this the baby incubator for the next year of SXSW stars? We approve.
