SXSW Accelerator Pitch Event is a platform to allow early stage technology startups to pitch their product and/or services to industry technology experts, high profiled media personnel, and Venture Capitalists / Angel Investors. Five companies will dazzle a live audience, panel of judges with their ideas, innovations, product and/or service on Saturday, March 10th. We will announce the winner of the Hyper-Connected Communities Technologies category at the SXSW Accelerator Awards Ceremony on Sunday, March 11th at 7pm in Salon AB.

Hyper-Connected Communities Technology startups showcases new products, services and apps that help hyper-connected communities (such as what occurs on-site at SXSW) better navigate and maximize their engagements. In addition to the kind of technologies that thrive in March in Austin, this category is for any creative and innovative app, product or service that does not fit elsewhere in the Accelerator lineup. Examples of technologies that might fit into this category include (but are not limited to) Internet of Things, energy, space, natural resources, agriculture and robotics.
