Julie Uhrman, founder and CEO of OUYA, participates in this keynote interview conducted by Joshua Topolsky, co-founder and founding editor in chief of the technology news network The Verge. Their discussion sparks an inspiring dialogue about the real-world challenges of crowdfunding, how open source approaches are disrupting traditional markets and how you can find startup success by daring to follow your dreams.
Much more than a record-breaking Kickstarter darling, OUYA is the $99 free-to-play game console built on Android and designed by Yves Behar. It is slated for release in March 2013. Interviewing Uhrman is Joshua Topolsky, co-founder and founding editor in chief of the technology news network The Verge. Before launching The Verge in 2011, Topolsky was the editor in chief at Engadget. He regularly appears as the technology correspondent for NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
Started in 1987, South by Southwest (SXSW) is a set of film, interactive, and music festivals and conferences that take place early each year in mid-March in Austin, Texas. SXSW’s original goal was to create an event that would act as a tool for creative people and the companies they work with to develop their careers, to bring together people from a wide area to meet and share ideas. That continues to be the goal today whether it is music, film or interactive technologies.
