For SXSW attendees, tech investors, influencers and media, “Meet the Finalists” is the perfect venue to discover what innovative minds are creating in various sectors of emerging technology that will change the world.

“We wanted the opportunity for SXSW attendees to meet the incredible startups that are being showcased during SXSW Pitch one-on-one,” said Chris Valentine, event producer. “Through a short pitch onstage, you can only learn so much about these startups. But with this ‘Meet the Finalist’ you have the opportunity to meet and go into a deeper conversation and connection.”

Past SXSW Pitch finalists from 2009 to 2018 have proven their value to the global startup ecosystem. Numbers don’t lie, and they say the following:

  • 453 companies = 71% funding, with combined funding in excess of almost $5.43 billion; and
  • 16% were acquired by companies like Google, British Telecom, Huffington Post, Apple, Live Nation, OpenTable, Constant Contact, and Harmon.

Come see who will add to this list. We hope to see you there!
