Current SXSW Accelerator judge Christine Herron has been tapped to Emcee the V2Venture pitch competition on July 16 at SXSW V2V 2014 in Las Vegas. Christine played an integral role in V2V's inaugural year last August as both a speaker and a V2Venture judge. Her 2013 V2V panel, "Not Just a Pretty Profile: Building Online Persona," was an attendee favorite. As the V2Venture Emcee, Christine will guide the day-long competition from beginning to end, working with the judges of each of the five categories to provide important feedback to the presenting startups.
A Director at Intel Capital, Christine invests in Internet and digital services companies, and has led investments in betaworks, E la Carte, Goldbely, Jelli, Movable Ink, and Storenvy. Christine also works as an active catalyst for startup teams, and is an enthusiastic adviser to both 500 Startups and StartX. Be sure to check out her full bio here.
