For tech investors, media, influencers and others, Demo Day is the perfect venue to discover what innovative minds are creating around the nation and the world, as about one-third of the 50 finalists are from outside the United States.

“This is a one-stop shop for meeting the incredible group of startups that were showcased in the SXSW Accelerator Live Pitch event,” said Chris Valentine, event producer. “These startups are the future of technology, and they’re excited to talk with you and answer your questions while demoing their products and services.”

Past SXSW Accelerator Pitch Event finalists from 2009 to 2017 have proven their value to the global startup ecosystem. Numbers don’t lie, and they say the following:

  • 403 companies = 70% funding
  • 16% were acquired
  • Total through 2017= $4.63 billion+
