Presented by the Austin Technology Incubator (ATI), the Austin Startup Fast Pitch (ASFP) is a fast pitch competition featuring Austin-based startups with revolutionary ideas. In fact, they are so big, their potential outsizes Austin's investment capability.
Five finalists will present to a panel of West Coast venture capitalists and in front of a well-connected audience at SXSW 2015. The Austin Startup Fast Pitch winner will receive a six month membership into the ATI portfolio, whose members and graduates have raised over $500M over the past seven years years - and through 18 exists they have already returned over $500M to investors. Additionally, the winner can accompany ATI on its next "investment road show" to the west coast.
