Grab your free tickets to the next BASHH

We are celebrating our 11th year, and we invite you to join us for the next BASHH event to come meet like minds in a relaxed environment.

Austin’s favorite casual tech networking event, BASHH is coming up on May 15th, and your free tickets are available here!

We’ll be at Hangar Lounge, which has a chill vibe, and a vintage airline motif. We’ve reserved all three floors – the first floor fills up first, then some of us need a more intimate, quiet area, so the second floor with sofas is a nice respite. Lastly, the rooftop deck, especially as it gets dark, is the hotspot.

Arrive early for a complimentary drink ticket while they last, and come meet people casually without being sold anything, without having to suffer through a boring speaker, and without being bombarded by people in suits selling you insurance products. It’s just a bunch of us nerds in a room, trying to act like we know what we’re doing.

Sponsors – BASHH is the best use of your marketing budget

BASHH has been around for over a decade, offering creative options for companies seeking to meet the best and brightest in the industry.

Are you tired of sponsoring events and getting little more than a link somewhere no one will ever see it? Are you annoyed at being oversold and leaving with no ROI?

We hear it all the time, especially in Austin.

So we keep your needs in mind throughout every event we host, and we’ve been at it for over a decade. Keeping anything alive for even half that time is pretty rare, but we’ve done it by rolling out the red carpet for our BASHH partners, and obsessing over making sure the right people are in the room come event day.

Whether you’re launching a new brand or looking to tap decision makers (particularly in tech), the best and the brightest, you’re in the right place. And if you’re hoping for a partner that’s ready to get creative, you’re still in the right place.

And what sets us apart is that we’re picky with our partners. We know our attendees very well, and we won’t take your money if we know they won’t connect with you meaningfully. If you’re selling medical devices, we’re not a match. If you’re hoping to hire yoga instructors, we’re not a match. If you’re selling hearses, we’re not a match. You get it. We won’t partner if it doesn’t make sense. It’s just one more way we’re different.

We’re happy to share demographic data, sponsorship goodies, and all BASHH dates – let’s get started!

Here is a sampling of our offline event sponsors, we’d love to feature you next:

I’ve met some of my best friends at BASHH

Why does BASHH have such a chill vibe? What keeps people coming back after a decade of monthly events?




BASHH started over a decade ago, and to many in town, it is more than a networking event, it’s home.

That sounds lame, but it’s true. It’s an event that many people have made the only thing they ever go to (because let’s face it, adulting is hard).

And every month, there are many new people that are welcomed into the mix, because at heart, we’re all just glorified children that are expected to do adult things like network, so why not do it in a place that’s not intimidating, not fake, and everyone else is secretly feeling at least a little nervous (or maybe that’s just me).

I’ve met people at BASHH that have entered my very tiny inner circle of friends, others have been insanely helpful to the growth of our company through their advice, and I’ve seen several companies start on a napkin at our events. Marriages and babies (some on purpose, others not so much) have resulted from BASHH. Funding has happened because of BASHH. Commiserating during chemo has happened because of BASHH.


There are no cliques. Just a bar full of people that are there to meet other non-robot humans that won’t throw business cards at you like a lame Chinese fighting star.

Humans first, business second. It’s the most simple recipe of all time.

And we invite you to join us at the next Big Ass Social Happy Hour!
