Austin—From a company developing rockets that can blast satellites into space to a business that decodes your dog’s genome, twelve local companies were honored this week as A-List startups by the Austin Chamber of Commerce and South by Southwest Interactive.
The twelve companies were broken down into three categories: emerging, growth, and scale. A Rising Star Entrepreneur award was also given to a young fashion designer, 15-year-old Isabella Rose Taylor. The winners from last year’s ceremony can be found here.
