Discover the Most Innovative Online Technologies
The seventh annual SXSW Accelerator startup competition presented by Oracle will take place at SXSW Startup Village on Saturday, March 14 and Sunday, March 15. A live audience, as well as a panel of expert judges will discover advancements in various sectors of emerging technology. The best part is product demonstrations by the most ambitious talents in the world with the most creative new ideas to change it. Catch a glimpse of the industry's future, with a guided tour by our emcees and judges.
How does the competition unfold? On Saturday, March 14, a total of 48 Interactive technology companies will dazzle a live audience, a panel of judges and our emcees with ideas, innovations, products and / or services during Round One of the event. These 48 companies are selected by the SXSW Screening Committee from the hundreds of startups from across the United States and around the world who apply for SXSW Accelerator before the Friday, November 7, 2014 deadline.
On Sunday, March 15, the field of 48 will be narrowed down to the top 18 companies – and these 18 startups will return to present to a new set of co-emcees and judges. At the end of the day on Sunday, these judges will select the grand prize winners for each category. The winners will go on to be honored at the SXSW Accelerator Awards on Sunday evening.
More than five hundred companies submitted their web-based products to the seventh annual SXSW Accelerator presented by Oracle. Competition was tough and we are extremely grateful for all of the great submissions we received this year. Congratulations to the Interactive finalists who will be showcasing their products on Saturday, March 14 and Sunday, March 15 at the Hilton Downtown Austin.
