LAS VEGAS - Some of the world's most innovative minds are in Las Vegas this week for the first South by Southwest V2V conference.

The event, a spin-off of South by Southwest's annual event in Austin, Texas, aims to connect entrepreneurs and investors.

SXSW V2V's entrance marks a significant coup for Las Vegas. Our city's emergence as an incubator for technological start-up companies made it an attractive location for SXSW organizers. More than 300 start-ups call Las Vegas home.

South by Southwest combines networking opportunities for innovators and investors with a music, film and interactive festival. Austin, Texas, this year, held its 26th SXSW event.

Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce officials say tech start-ups participating in SXSW V2V want to catch a glimpse of business activity in Las Vegas.
