FoundersLive: June 20 at Capital Factory
What can you do — or witness — in 99 seconds?
At FoundersLive, organizers promise they can inspire, educate and entertain you in this very short timefame. Come to Capitol Factory on June 20 from 6:30 to 9 pm to watch in RL (and at happy hour!) the unforgettable live-streamed 99-second startup pitch competition that strives to bring entrepreneurship to the masses and create a thriving global startup community. View the Founders Live Hall of Fame for details on recent winners from cities around the country — including Austin’s recent winner Right Here Right Now, an innovative natural disaster recovery network.
Up to five startups will pitch their concepts in less than 99 seconds and the winning company will be decided by the crowd.
FoundersLive is definitely great practice for SXSW Pitch (formerly known as the SXSW Accelerator Pitch Event), which showcases 50 top startups from around the world in 10 different categories. The application process for SXSW Pitch 2019 opens on Monday, June 25.
