For the eight startups participating in the third annual SXSW Music Accelerator yesterday, describing how their companies help musicians find that sweet spot between connecting to their existing and potential fans and the reality to make money could have been a harrowing experience. Fortunately for the spokespeople pitching a panel of judges and co-emcees Brad King and Evan Lowenstein, their responses showed a genuine desire to ensure artists' success in the rapidly evolving music industry.
"What is your secret sauce?" is a question that often stumps startups as they try to clearly and briefly explain what separates them from their competitors. Fortunately for many of the 18 companies pitching in the final round at the fifth annual SXSW Accelerator, the answers were succinct and compelling.
