Nov 8 is entry deadline for SXSW Accelerator 2014

UPDATE: Deadline extended to 11:59 pm CST on Sunday, November 10

SXSW Interactive brings together many different types of people with many different interests.

A particularly strong niche in Austin in March is the startup community, ranging from entrepreneurs to venture capital companies to angel investors. If you are a startup, the best way to leverage this niche is to enter your new company in the SXSW Accelerator pitch competition. But don’t delay — all entries must be received by 11:59 pm CST on Friday, November 8. Click here for complete entry details.

Also, remember that one of the new additions for the 2014 event is the SXSW Accelerator Awards on Sunday evening, March 9. The only way that your startup can be featured in this award ceremony is filling out the application before 11:59 pm CST on Friday, November 8. But you say that award shows are not your thing? Then maybe funding is more your ballgame. Over the last few years, SXSW Accelerator finalists have raised more than $587 million in investment dollars.

The SXSW Accelerator pitch competition is one of the main aspects of SXSW Startup Village, the space on the 4th floor of the Austin downtown Hilton that hosts all entrepreneur-related programming.
