Facebook’s FbStart event will help top mobile startups in Austin for SXSW learn how to drive greater user growth, engagement and re-engagement by leveraging Facebook's social channels and paid acquisition tools. In the spirit of SXSW this FbStart event will provide an interactive experience for attendees to choose which topics are most important to them.

Brunch will be provided.


Four different stations will cover the following topics:

- Build great and social cross-platform mobile apps with Parse

- Create a seamless login experience and enable people to bring their authentic identities into your app

- Share beautiful stories and photos to Facebook to drive engagement and get discovered by new users on Facebook

- Acquire and re-engage the right people at scale using mobile app ads


Ilya Sukhar, the co-founder and CEO of Parse, will also join us for a fireside chat and Q&A session. Also, our Facebook product specialists will be on hand during this event to help answer any questions you may have.
