Austinpreneur (Austin + entrepreneur)

Austinpreneur (Austin + entrepreneur) might refer to any entrepreneur in Austin, Texas. Joshua Baer has had the website austinpreneur since at least 2009 and is most often associated with the term. Baer founded Capital Factory in 2008, a tech startup incubator and co-working space in Austin, Texas. He runs a contest at SXSW to move a startup to Austin.

A March 15, 2013 story at Startup Revolution was titled “AustinPreneur and Angel Investor Jason Cohen On Deal Flow,” indicated that the term “Austinpreneur” can be applied to people other than Joshua Baer.
