The global connection and significant relationship between German and US tech companies is evidenced by what's called the "German Haus" at SXSW. The German Haus is the main venue of the joint German presentation at SXSW hosting curated networking events, start-up formats, presentations, roundtables, as well as interdisciplinary performances and concerts.
