Every year SXSW in Austin, Texas holds a competition for some of the most innovative and exciting startups in the nation. The winner gets the title of Startup of the year and becomes a Startup legend.
Who is going to be there?
Twenty-five incredible companies of high caliber performance including Gravy! Many of the companies pitching during this event are software companies disrupting the way specific industries operate. Here is the complete rundown of all the competitors that will be there! https://www.startupofyear.com/sxsw
How have we been preparing?
Here at Gravy, we’ve been getting ready for a few weeks in advanced just because we are so excited to be involved! We’ve been doing everything from making posters, getting merch, and creating an ongoing countdown. We even had an internal mock event in our HQ to simulate the event as close as possible!
Also, shout-out to our amazing team for giving endless feedback and suggestions for our pitch improvement!
Our Marketing Manager, Product Manager, and CEO will all be going down to the event to participate in the startup festivities. Once in Austin, they will pitch Gravy to the 30 judges and hundred’s of people who have come to SXSW. The first pitch is a 1-minute pitch where all the competitors will go back to back with their pitches. From there, a select few competitors will go onto a 3-minute pitch and get the opportunity to pitch to the judges again for a chance to get entered into the mega startup of the year event which will have the top 100 startups in the nation.
We look forward to seeing all the great talent and innovative ideas there!
