Action Point has a Front Row Judge’s Seat!

SXSW Interactive is just days away – are you ready? Action Point Analytics is honored to participate again as a judge for the International Startup Pitch Competition at SXSW, hosted by International Accelerator and CASA Mexico.

As a global community of entrepreneurs, we are strengthened by our diversity. Last year, 22% of SXSW attendees were from the international community, representing 94 countries. We are excited to hear more about emerging technologies from other countries and lend our support during the competition.

In the Fast Pitch Competition, more than 100 international startups pitch to a panel of judges, to win one of three posts at the International Accelerator, a 12-month program that provides access to funding, mentorship and U.S. markets.

The pitches will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

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

Good luck to all of the contestants!

“This competition truly has the potential to change lives. It is inspiring to see so many entrepreneurs with great ideas who are working hard, against some pretty big odds, to make these ideas a reality.”

– Christa Rose, Managing Partner, Action Point Analytics
