I pulled him into practically every B2C strategy meeting with portfolio companies at the Austin Technology Incubator. Paul is a rare breed of marketers who understands the entire value chain of marketing.

Austin's Startup Ecosystem

The Incompletely Comprehensive List of Everything Austin Startups

Paul O'Brien

Venture capital and media innovation.

Innovative companies, collaboration, and education in entrepreneurship and funding, moves venture capital. Let's talk.

Where in particular I fit it?  I started MediaTech Ventures which develops, for companies and the broader economy, innovations in media, incubators, local economies of scale, partnerships, and the effective use of technologies that result in successful ventures.

An example of that?  I'm the voice behind "Texas startups" and the region being a now and future hub for programs such as Founder Institute and Mass Challenge, as well as a focus from startup investors throughout the world.

One on one, I provide cities with a framework of economic development, help companies foster innovation, guide startups to capital, and foster investment in entrepreneurship.

Paul - Thanks again for joining the bootcamp last week. It was extremely helpful to hear your framework and apply it to my business. I started drafting a pitch deck a few months ago. Everything about it felt wrong, but I wasn't sure why. It wasn't until your session that it clicked and I knew instantly what was missing. I was telling the wrong story for that particular audience. Just wanted to say thank you again for making fundraising feel accessible to new founders.

    Every Company is an Internet Company

    it’s time for the distinction of “internet company” to die. It’s time for the distinction of “tech industry” to die. In 2020, hopefully it’s clear, that every business that hopes to succeed must excel with this foundation of our economy – the internet. All companies are internet companies It’s not dis...

Few better returns on investment for Austin startups than hiring SEO'Brien. If I saw "we're going to allocate 10% of raise to hire Paul..." in "Use of Funds" in early-stage capital raise I would be way more inclined to invest.

Paul has the great ability to juggle 8 balls at once and is a jack of all trades. He is not only helpful on everything related to press, PR, marketing and social media, but has also added value by providing strategic direction/advice and even gets his hands dirty with technical development. He can be relied upon as a trusted partner and project manager.
