My role at SXSW
I was honored to be a SXSW Accelerator Pitch 2017 Advisory Board Member along with 100+ experienced tech professionals from around the globe. SXSW Pitch is a startup showcase event that has an “open call” for startups to apply. From 2009 to 2021, 572 companies have participated in SXSW Pitch, with over 82% receiving funding and acquisitions in excess of $14.5 billion.
