AnyQuip selected as finalist in 2017 SXSW Accelerator

by AnyQuip January 24, 2017

Each year the SXSW Accelerator Pitch Event team is tasked with selecting the most unique and impactful startups to present. Over 500 applications were submitted by startups based in cities around the world. The addition of three new categories – "Transportation," "Sports" and "Security and Privacy" – means an even greater variety of startups are able to compete in and benefit from the Accelerator Pitch Event.

"This year's class of finalists are the best we've ever seen in the nine years we have been organizing this competition. I'm particularly excited about the diverse innovation we are seeing from all over the world – it's the globalization of the startup ecosystem, and Accelerator is right at the heart of it. A couple of the most prevalent trends reflected across SXSW as a whole involve artificial intelligence and health and wearable technologies, and we are seeing an anticipated rise of innovation in non-traditional sectors, highlighted by our new categories," said SXSW Accelerator Event Producer Chris Valentine.
