Domestic Abuse survivor to create YouTube series on Women in Technology at SXSW

in Press Releases

The as yet un-named project is being produced by Ini Augustine of Social Wise Media Group.  Ini Augustine overcame homelessness, domestic abuse, and economic misfortune as featured by the Huffington Post.

She is Aspiring Businesswoman of the year 2013 for NAWBO, The National Association of Women Business Owners.  She started her career with Dun & Bradstreet at the age of 15, and became the youngest Financial Data Consultant in the history of the company.

Ini’s experience as a woman in technology, insurance, and finance inspired her to tell the true story of women in technology, centered on the iconic music/technology festival SXSW.  We examine the idea of freedom, respect, challenge and success for smart women.  We want to include business owners and community in an effort to get this project produced.

Social Wise Media Group will be co-hosting the Iowa party at SXSW 2014.  South by Southwest is an iconic technology, music, and film festival, with over 100,000 attendees. This series provides sponsors with the opportunity to be an integral part of the startup and business community for years to come.  Anyone, and everyone interested in music or business will see this YouTube series.

The production would be edgier with a reality show theme and focus, featuring women business owners, speakers, and attendees. The series will debut in June of 2014 on YouTube.

  • 30,000 people attended the Interactive portion of SXSW.
  • 65,000 industry professionals attended the trade show portion alone.
  • SXSW was directly and indirectly responsible for injecting approximately $168 million into the Austin economy.

 We have launched an indiegogo campaign to help fund this effort.  Help support this project by donating and sharing our project at
