Longhorn Startup Showcase

Monday, March 16
12:30PM - 1:30PM

Hilton Austin Downtown
Salon K
500 E 4th St

Presented by The University of Texas at Austin, the Longhorn Startup Showcase is a fast pitch competition for UT Austin-based student startups with revolutionary ideas looking for funding to scale their innovations. Innovative startups, like previous winners Beyonic and Everywhere Energy, are leading examples of how university-based startups can have global impact with creative uses of technology and a sound business plan. We will choose five finalists to advance and present to a hometown panel of corporate, angel, and venture investor judges in front of a well-connected audience at SXSW 2015. The Longhorn Startup Showcase Pitch finalists will each engage in Q&A sessions with judges and have opportunities for discussions with the audience.
