SXSW is proud to announce that the complete emcee and judging panel has been named for the 2013 SXSW Accelerator and we were lucky enough to gather a phenomenal group for the job. This panel will select the grand prize winner for each category and the results will be announced shortly thereafter.
We wouldn't trust such an important task to just anyone, so the following esteemed judges and emcees have agreed to contribute their expertise toward the success of the event. We couldn't be more pleased with the assemblage of personalities we've gathered and we're excited to say that this innovative competition has an inspired panel of judges and emcees to match.
Are you an entrepreneur, involved in startups, or interested in building up your own company? One of the most critical issues facing entrepreneurs is deciding if and when it makes sense to raise outside capital. Raising Startup Capital is a 2013 SXSW Interactive workshop, presented by Arie Abecassis, that aims to help others be better informed on how to think about the funding decision, become more aware of their options and be ready to develop a course of action. To get an online sneak peek of this valuable workshop, General Assembly will be hosting a FREE live stream on February 1st. This one-hour live stream will highlight some of the takeaways from the upcoming Raising Startup Capital SXSW 2013 session. There will be a live Q&A, so come to the chat room with questions ready.
