About the Startup Showcase
Spotlighting innovation and entrepreneurship, the SXSW Eco Startup Showcase is the place to launch your social or sustainability impact company. This one-day investor pitch competition will feature top startups from around the world, hand selected by our Advisory Board and the SXSW Eco team. Join us at SXSW Eco 2013 as we discover the next opportunities in cleantech investing.
The Green Tech category highlights startups offering solutions in the areas of agriculture, air, energy, green building, recycling and waste, transportation and fuels, water, materials and more. This portion of the competition will be split into two categories, companies looking for Seed and companies looking for Series funding.
The Clean Web category includes startups offering web, mobile and software technology that directly or indirectly impacts sustainability, ranging from products and services that enable Green Tech application to software that analyzes and/or changes consumer behavior to information technology that solves resource constraints.
The Social Impact category encompasses both for- and not-for-profit startups that provide scalable solutions to society’s challenges in the areas of education, health, enterprise development and more.
Generate buzz and investor interest in your cleantech company by presenting at the SXSW Eco Startup Showcase. Apply for the chance to be one of the semi-finalists that will compete before a live audience of investors and a panel of judges.

The Pike Powers Lab will offer product performance testing for companies selected to present at SXSW Eco. Participants will be able to include the results of the product testing in their presentation, thereby providing the Judging panel with independent performance testing results to assist them in their evaluation of presenting companies. After the event, participants can use this valuable information for their own business purposes. For winners of the Green Tech (Seed + Series) and Clean Web categories, the Pike Powers Lab will provide 40 hours of free product development and/or performance verification testing. Read more here.
