One more thing before letting you dive into this week reading: this year as well I decided to join SXSW as an advisory board member. SXSW Pitch, which is the competition dedicated to startups, will take place on March 17th and 18th and it’s a great opportunity to showcase your emerging technology product or service in front of industry leaders.
Of the 553 companies who participated between 2009 and 2019, over 80% received investments, with combined funding in excess of almost $7.6 billion. And with 18% of these companies that have been acquired by the likes of Google, British Telecom, Huffington Post, Apple and Live Nation. The deadline to apply is January 8th at 11:59 pm PST.

Until next week, take care!
