What could be cooler than owning a cooler? Winning a cooler!
SpareFoot wants to help you cool off this summer with our College Cooler Giveaway.
Fresh out of the University of Texas, Jahn Veach joined SpareFoot back in February 2010, when the company truly fit the hard-core definition of a startup.
“At the time, SpareFoot was a five-person company with an uncertain future. The opportunity to help guide and build a company from the ground up was irresistible,” Veach said. “Because I had just graduated from college and didn’t have much to lose if things went south, I felt that this was a once-in-a-lifetime offer I couldn’t refuse.”
Things certainly haven’t gone south. Veach now is a member of a robust Development Team at SpareFoot, and we employ more than 120 people. By the end of the year, the SpareFoot crew should number about 160.

“One thing that a lot of rappers tend to do is just recite lyrics at the crowd, with no energy or participation,” said Crayton, a native Austinite whose stage name is Yung Prospect. “On the other hand, I like to move and really engage myself into bringing that positive vibe at any venue I perform at.”

The Austin tech scene is a constant buzz of activity, and it’s a daunting task to stay current with all the startup crawls, happy hours, acquisitions and emerging companies. If you’re like me, you’re part of the growing number of Americans who know the value of social media platforms like Twitter as a fast, personalized source for news. It’s the key for every Austinite who considers him or herself in the know.
Not all that long ago, the phrase “content marketing” didn’t exist. However, according to the Content Marketing Institute, the concept actually dates back to 19th-century tractor pioneer John Deere. Deere launched a magazine whose aim was to educate farmers, not sell them farming equipment. That, the institute says, marked the birth of content marketing.
