HATCH is a pitch competition for startups with revolutionary ideas. They will be featuring 15 revolutionary startups certain to change your world. And the great news is that NewsiT is one of those finalists! Here’s the scoop from HATCH:
On March 11th, 15 HATCH finalists will present their revolutionary ideas at HATCH, an event being held as part of the new SXSW Startup Village. Each team will be given four minutes to present their companies to a room of startup enthusiasts. Judges will then ask questions of each presenter. After all finalist presentations, the judges will determine how many virtual dollars they would invest in each time. The top three teams receiving the most virtual HATCH dollars will be crowned the winners.
NewsiT is really excited about this opportunity, the competition and the chance to meet a ton of great people. And if you have not seen NewsiT Founder & CEO Melinda Wittstock present, you are in for a treat… unless you are one of our competitors!
