7 Notable Tech & Startup Speakers at SXSW 2018



While South by Southwest (SXSW) is easily one of the most recognizable events in the world, its definition is surprisingly hazy. Is it a music festival? A tech conference? Or simply a collaboration between the most interesting industries in the country for one of the most memorable weeks of the year? Anyone that’s ever attended the Austin event knows that “all of the above” doesn’t even begin to cover the excitement of SXSW. And while the entertainment industry takes a lot of credit for the awesomeness that is SXSW, tech holds its own when it comes to creating the electric atmosphere of this epic coming-together.

Hundreds of celebrities, thousands of companies, and millions of attendees descend on Austin for concerts, parties, events, and speakers that impart wisdom, instill joy, and generally engage people in ways most of us could only imagine. In that vein, we wanted to prepare you for the festivities by showcasing a few speakers that will be participating in sessions on Tech & Startups. Take a look at who you can see in Austin this year below!

Ann Hiatt, Chief-of-Staff to the Chairman at Google

As the former executive assistant to not one, not two, but three of the most influential minds in the world, Ann Hiatt is a decidedly impressive presence in the tech industry. In addition to currently being the Chief-of-Staff at Google and the Business Executive Partner of Eric Schmidt, she has also been the executive assistant to Marissa Meyer of Yahoo! and Jeff Bezos of Amazon. Plus, she’s fluent in Swedish, which is impressive in and out of the tech industry.

Hiatt will be speaking solo at a session titled Lessons in Innovation from Silicon Valley Elite. She will regale attendees with practical stories from her storied tech past, as well as tips and advice for people looking to “hire with vision, breed creativity and ambition in your organization, and harness unparalleled power and influence under your leadership.”

His goal to reshape Afghanistan’s image in the US to reflect its social and institutional development is as noble as it is difficult. By focusing on culture and peace initiatives, he’s been able to secure a number of investments between the two countries, setting a prosperous foundation of peace for the future.

Dr. Mohib will join Keith Alaniz of Rumi Spice and Victoria McColm of McColm & Company in a session titled Social Enterprise: Peace Through BusinessThey will discuss the importance of pairing global peace initiatives with economic opportunities that can lead to a more sustainable future, using Afghanistan as a case study.

As an expert in blockchain and cryptocurrency, one of the most talked about topics in tech today, Narula has definitively established herself as a force in the tech community. Her work on distributed systems could someday be the difference maker in turning blockchain into a global standard.

Narula will be giving a talk at SXSW 2018 titled Cryptocurrencies: A New Future for Money. With cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin becoming increasingly significant in the financial landscape of the modern world, understanding its potential is more important than ever. And who better to learn from than someone leading a team of people engaged in “cutting-edge research to build the future of money.”

Daymond John, Star of Shark Tank and CEO of The Shark Group

Being one of the stars of ABC’s Shark Tank effectively turns you into the public face of entrepreneurship in America. And Daymond John wears that honor like a badge.

John will be participating in a session titled Swim with a Shark: Rise & Grind to Maximize Your Day in hopes of inspiring some SXSW 2018 attendees to get out there and accomplish their dreams. By using successful entertainers and entrepreneurs as an example, John will show attendees how a little “rise and grind” can make all the difference when it comes to achieving and succeeding.

Sarah Herrlinger, Director of Global Accessibility Policy & Initiatives at Apple

Her inclusive mindset has allowed for innovations like the VoiceOver screenreader and the Made for iPhone Hearing Aids.

In a talk titled Y35 W3 C4N: Innovations in Accessibility, Herrlinger will join Richard Ellenson of Cerebral Palsy Foundation, Betsy Furler of Easter Seals Greater Houston/BridgingApps, and Haben Girma, a disability rights lawyer, to talk about innovations in accessibility that will allow disabled people of all kinds access to technology like never before.
