We are conducting an international search for 15 companies with revolutionary ideas to compete at HATCH. These early-stage tech startups will present their business plans to a panel of corporate, angel, and venture investor judges in front of well-connected audience as part of the SXSW 2012 Startup Village on March 11th. HATCH will provide the lucky finalists a platform to distinguish themselves at SXSW. In addition, there will be mentoring and educational opportunities leading up to the pitch competition.
The deadline to apply is Friday, February 10th. We’ve tried to make this as easy as possible for startups to apply. (Please note: the 15 selected finalists are required to cover the costs of a SXSW badge and logistics related to their attendance. We do have discount coupons for finalists to purchase a badge.)
