The SXSW Accelerator finalists have been announced, and I’m personally looking very forward to the event. There’s a great line-up of startups that you’re going to want to see. Here’s the list of finalists. And here’s some more info about the program:
The newest addition to the mix of activities in Austin is Microsoft BizSpark Accelerator at SXSW. Scheduled Monday, March 16 at the Downtown Austin Hilton, this event showcases some of the most innovative new products, services and online applications. The list of finalists in the four different categories (audio, innovative web, social technologies and video) is now posted on the Accelerator site — congrats to all these incredible companies, as well as the numerous other amazing companies who applied to be part of the event (but were not accepted). Also, we are excited to announce the two emcees for the 2009 event: Silicon Valley VC Guy Kawasaki as well as veteran tech journalist Brad King. Be at the Downtown Austin Hilton on Monday, March 16 to watch these two help uncover the best of the best!
