What is Grit Daily House?

Grit Daily House is anchored by day-time panels and fireside chats with top names in tech. Our 2022 emphasis, in conjunction with “sister” media outlet, BlockTelegraph, is Blockchain & NFTs. We will be joined by collaborators from CoinTelegraph, Benzinga, and Digital Trends.

Meet journalists and get the scoop on some of the week’s best content.

Expect activations, giveaways, and panel and fireside talks led by star moderators.

Grit Daily House is located one block from the “old Spotify House,” a block from Vans Warped Tour Austin kickoff, and four blocks from the Convention Center. The location is easily walkable.

It is an exclusive venue, known for its “O.G.” and “indie” activations from GT’s Kombucha, Digital Trends, Otherworld Computing, and Beyond Meat, along with “celebrity sightings.”
