National retailer Target has a big footprint at SXSW this weekend with a series of events at Austin's Fast Co. Grill. The company is using its presence there to launch a program called "Co.Labs & Target Retail Accelerator." The competition offers $75,000 someone who can " revolutionize Target’s mobile retail experience."
Go to http://abullseyeview.com/target-fast-company-retail-accelerator-sxsw-casey-carl-interview/ to learn all about it via Q&A with president of multichannel Casey Carl. It was probably a good place to be if you're a mobile geek in Austin, and tired of weirdly-thematic drinks, panel discussions, bad music (or even good music), self-proclaimed digital geniuses, bad hors d'ouvres, worse Mex-Tex food, and just generally no place to sit.
