HATCH pitch is the revolutionary competition for tech startups making life better. Join our well-connected audience as the first group of finalists present their business plans and receive feedback from esteemed entrepreneur, corporate, angel, and venture investor judges. The audience weighs in with comments and votes using mobile and web.

Finalists are selected from a pool of applicants from around the world. They prepare awesome pitches with coaching from startup experts to refine their business models and presentations. Judges select winners after hearing all the presentations. Prizes include hosting services, investor meetings, media exposure, office space, consultations, and mentoring. HATCH pitch alumni have raised funds and made quite a splash.

The program spans three SXSW sessions providing networking opportunities with fans, team members, mentors, advisors, and investors.
