Are you going? 

Is there something that you want us to check out and report back on? What exciting things are you up to that we should know about? 

The Startup Grind Grand Rapids team is headed to SXSW to manage the Midwest House Midwest Madness Startup Competition and while we're there, we'd love to know what resources to be on the lookout for to bring to our flock of founders, investors, and startup teams.
