We're thrilled to share that SXSW, the annual music, film, and interactive festival held in Austin, TX has selected us a finalist in their 2015 Accelerator program.
Accelerator is a startup pitch competition that features some of the most innovative companies across six technological categories - Enterprise and Smart Data Technologies, Entertainment and Content Technologies, Digital Health and Life Sciences Technologies, Social Technologies, Wearable Technologies, and Innovative World Technologies. We are among the list of 48 finalists and will demo our product at the Accelerator competition in March.
We are included with an outstanding group of nine other startups in the Innovative World Technologies category. This is such a big deal for us because if we win, we take home a prize package with some awesome tech swag and two badges for SXSW 2016, and get opportunities with venture and technology press in attendance as well as exposure to the entire SXSW audience. Not bad! We're already dreaming of a feature in Fast Company or Inc. or Entrepreneur or TechCrunch.
The technologies in our category are worldwide and range from finance and data security to innovations in cooking, farming, and communication. Read more about our crowdfunding microfinance product and see how it works. Then, check out the competition: CreoPop, ProtonMail, RapidSOS, SLANTRANGE, SmartyPans, ZUtA Labs, AnchorID, ThinkVoting, and Final. And come back and see us after March 15, when we will make an announcement if we win.
