AUSTIN, Tex. — UK Trade & Investment brought a score of companies from Great Britain to South by Southwest. We talked to every one (every one that was willing to stand in front of a camera, that is) to find out what they do, what the startup scene in the UK is like, and what they found the most inspiring about SXSW.

We’ll have more in-depth videos with a few of the companies soon, but in the meantime, here are some quick hits with a dozen founders.

If you couldn’t make it down to Austin this year, you can follow all of our SXSW coverage here. And make sure to join the Twitter conversation.
