“What pain point are you solving?” is typically a straightforward question for startups. But for many of the 50 companies pitching in ten categories during the eleventh annual SXSW Pitch (formerly SXSW Accelerator) Presented by Cyndx, pinpointing the unique problem their versatile innovations addresses wasn’t so simple.
Fortunately, we all benefit from the ambitious and adventurous creators in both emerging and traditional industries like blockchain, transportation, and artificial intelligence today.
Congratulations to this year's ten category winners, who were announced at the SXSW Pitch Award Ceremony after the two-day competition.
