The University of Texas at Austin is proud to present the 7th Annual 2020 SXSW Student Startup PitchTexas Competition—with prize money of $50,000.
In an opportunity of a lifetime, startups led by university students from across the country will compete to impress and win over the savvy entrepreneur and venture-capitalist judges for up to $50,000 in cash prizes, bragging rights, and a chance to inspire the SXSW crowd. This is the seventh year for the PitchTexas competition at SXSW, started and run by the Texas McCombs MBA Entrepreneurship Society, a graduate student organization at The University of Texas at Austin McCombs School of Business.
The top 16 PitchTexas applicants will compete at preliminary rounds on March 13, 2020, at the Fairmont Austin during the University of Texas SXSW Activation. Later in the day, four finalists will take the stage and pitch in front of a live audience, field tough questions from the judges, and do their best to win the SXSW 2020 PitchTexas.
