Unofficial SXSW event celebrates social innovation in Austin

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Celebrating Austin innovators, is what one event outside of SXSW, promises to do.

If you’re looking to do something fun outside of the usual festivities, you’re invited to chat, learn, listen, shop and eat, as social innovators and start ups come together to talk about how to make more of a local impact.

KXAN’s Erin Cargile sat down with Liz Deering, the co-founder of 121 Giving, who is participating in the event.

Discover Local Impact is Sunday, March 13 from 11 a.m. 3 p.m. at Urban CoLab on East 12th street. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
