Austin, TX –Last week at the 2014 State of Innovation event, Turnkey Vacation Rentals, an Austin-based vacation rental marketing and management company, was recognized as one of the top startups on the Austin A-List by the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce and South by Southwest.
The A-List recognizes 12 of the most promising Austin-area startup companies in the key sectors of enterprise data, entertainment, health, social, wearable tech, innovative world tech, and CPG. With over 250 nominated companies, the A-List selection process was particularly competitive this spring. The prestigious A-List recognizes Austin’s most innovative and scalable emerging, growth, and scale stage startups.
The primary goal of the A-List is to increase visibility of Austin’s hottest innovators to help recruit additional venture capital investment and top talent to Austin. To date, there has been a combined $348,720,000 million in investment for all A-List honorees since the inception of the awards program in 2011.
“In a city with such a great startup scene, it is a tremendous honor for everyone at TurnKey to be picked among the hottest startups,” said Turnkey founder and CEO John Banczak. “The previous Austin A-list companies have gone on to do great things and we hope to continue that tradition as we expand.”
