Entrepreneurship is a way of life in Austin. Everyone you meet is building a mobile app or disrupting an industry. News headlines congratulate startups receiving hundreds of thousands (or millions) in funding each day. Sometimes it seems so commonplace that you'd think founding a company was easy. But don't be fooled.

Hear from three Austin startups, Sandbox Commerce, DivInc and Gallivnt, about the blood, sweat and tears that went into their first year building their startups. They'll share the brutally honest, behind-the-scenes look at how they pushed through when things got tough, and why they wake up to fight for their company's success each day. Get ready to remove your rose-colored glasses because the road of entrepreneurship is no easy feat. Is it even worth it? You'll be surprised by their answers.

Austin Startup Week is supported in part by Capital FactoryTechstarsGalvanize, and Janik Vinnakota LLP. If you see someone from their teams, give them a hug and hi-five!
