Grit Daily House is one of the “media houses” during SxSW. Four blocks from The Convention Center, it skews “VIP” with a private chef.

Grit Daily, an accredited media partner to SxSW will broadcast live from Grit Daily House, March 10-15.
Some of the best programming in Austin will grace the outdoor stage, while podcast recordings brought to you by Linqto and Grit Daily Startup Show podcast host Sebastian Rusk and co-host Karim Nurani will record inside, with guest applications to record on the podcast available right here.

Grit Daily is the award-winning, New York-based news outlet that’s covered 8,000+ startups. Its sister publication BlockTelegraph, also at Grit Daily House, is the Blockchain industry-trade publication supported by Polygon in 2021.

Equally known for its events, including an alliance with Microsoft for events in Times Square including the 2020 Zero Waste Summit and the 2021 Miami Blockchain & NFT Summit which Grit Daily sold to Mana to form NFT BZL, Grit Daily’s flagship event is Grit Daily House, a multi-day ticketed event in Austin, Texas. Tickets are free until they run out here.

What is Grit Daily House

Grit Daily House is a physical location in Austin, four blocks from the Convention Center, with an outdoor stage. The outdoor stage hosts some of the best content, with innovative company leadership across the startup, food, and drinks spectrum filming live. Authors Laurie Segall and Jim Kwik are paired to take the stage and talk all things writing, for example, on March 13.

Grit Daily House is also the only “media house” that permits outside news outlets on its stage, including Digital Trends, Benzinga, Axios, CoinDesk, and Insider, among others.

The featured Grit Daily House is tended by George the Celebrity Doorman, Ozzy the Bartender, and “the People’s Chef” Adrian Davila, grilling quintessentially Austin dishes in the backyard.

Grit Daily House is ticketed only. If you do not have a ticket, you may not enter. (So get a ticket here.)

Due to the capacity limits of Grit Daily House, a ticket does not guarantee entry.
