What happens when you take twenty handpicked creatives and luminaries, give them each two minutes before a live audience and the same (fuzzy) question to unravel? That's the premise behind 20x2, the popular event staged for the past fourteen years at SXSW Interactive, headed for the first time ever to Austin Startup Week.

Join us as our twenty wrangle with the question "What Were You Thinking?" You'll laugh, you may cry, and it wouldn't surprise us if you came away inspired. It's 20x2 at Austin Startup Week! 


What: 20x2
Which Is: Twenty Speakers. One Question. Two Minutes Each. 
When: Tuesday October 7th, 7pm 
Where: Elysium (7th & Red River, Austin)
The Question: "What Were You Thinking?"

Tuesday's Austin Startup Week lineup and 20x2 is supported by AT&T U-verse.
