Fast Pitch Competitors, We’re Watching You!

One of the amazing things about SXSW Interactive is that the conference brings together an impressively diverse and international crowd. The democratizing effect of technology has led to the rise of startup enclaves in many different parts of the world.

As a community of entrepreneurs, we are strengthened by investing in a global capacity for growth. In addition, we benefit from seeing the variety in startup models and learning from one another’s experiences.

Action Point Consulting is honored to serve this international community and excited to partner with International Accelerator and CASA Mexico on a Fast Pitch Competition for international startups! The competition is a forum for more than 100 startups to pitch to a panel of judges composed of mentors, advisors, investors and international founders.

At stake are three posts at the International Accelerator, with access to funding, mentorship and U.S. markets. Best of luck to the contestants!

Key evaluation criteria include:

  • Potential market size
  • Product demand and market fit
  • Strength of startup team
  • Business model feasibility
  • Exit strategy and financials

International talent is becoming an increasingly vital component in the startup ecosystem. This competition gives a diverse group of entrepreneurs the opportunity to break through on a big stage.
