Illumitex is one of Austin’s best! The top 12 most promising start-ups in the Austin, Texas, area were announced and honored by the Austin Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with South By Southwest Interactive, at a special ceremony held in May. The companies, selected by a panel of independent judges from more than 275 nominations, comprise the annual Austin A-List of Hottest Start-ups. The 12 honorees for 2015 were named in three investment stage categories—emerging, growth and scale—and represent key sectors of innovation including big data, biotechnology, hardware, software, consumer packaged goods, music technology, agriculture, medical devices, e-commerce and mobile app development. This recognition is intended to increase the visibility of Austin’s most fundable, scalable and innovative regional start-ups, and drive increased venture capital funding to central Texas. Illumitex was recognized in the growth category.
