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 Health and Wearables Technologies category at the SXSW Accelerator Awards Ceremony on Sunday, March 11th at 7pm in Salon AB.
