SXSWedu® Conference today announced the finalists
for the inaugural LAUNCHedu
competition, a program that allows entrepreneurs to pitch their educational business concepts and educational products to a judging panel of venture capitalists, successful entrepreneurs and education practitioners.
The competition will feature a full day of presentations in two separate categories – one for K-12 and one for Higher Education. It will take place during SXSWedu Conference on March 7, 2012 at the Hilton Austin Downtown in Austin, TX. The event is built upon the model of the successful Accelerator programs at SXSW® Interactive and SXSW Music Festivals.
