CargoX selected as a finalist for SXSW Pitch 2019

Jan. 15, 2019, 10:22 a.m.

(Austin, 15 January 2019) - CargoX is one of five finalists in the Transportation & Delivery category at the 11th SXSW Pitch in Austin, Texas, chosen from over 800 startups. SXSW is the top-tier event where startups such as Twitter, Foursquare, and Gowalla made their big-bang appearances, and the festival has been visited by Elon Musk of Tesla and Sadiq Khan, mayor of London, in the past years.

SXSW Pitch is the marquee event of South by Southwest® (SXSW®) Conference & Festivals (March 8-17, 2019) Entrepreneurship & Startup Track, where leading startups from around the world showcase some of the most impressive technological innovations to a panel of hand-picked judges and a live audience. Out of the more than 800 companies that applied to present at SXSW Pitch 2019, CargoX was selected among the 50 finalists spanning 10 separate categories. Winners will be announced on 10 March 2019.

“Of the 453 companies we’ve seen deliver their pitches on stage, 71 percent have gone on to secure funding, and 16 percent were acquired through 2018. We’re both proud and excited about where our past finalists have gone and where this year’s group is sure to go,” said SXSW Pitch Event Producer Chris Valentine.

Thousands of investors from around the world flock to SXSW every year looking for the next big thing, and SXSW Pitch is a major part of the excitement.
