There are entrepreneurial stories about Silicon Valley startups born from garages. We have our origin story in Austin — Dell Technologies started in a dorm at the University of Texas by Michael Dell in 1984.

According to Wikipedia, Dell is the 3rd largest PC vendor and the 6th largest company in Texas. They had a sizable presence at SXSW 2022 — renting out an entire 2-story venue with community outreach areas and product showcases. It was my favorite corporate showcase from this year’s event.

This message in the staircase dramatically emphasized their origin.
