About This Contest:

Hundreds of startups will be attending SXSW trying to get some exposure for their company and mission. Qukku has partnered with HATCH Pitch to give contest-winning companies a chance at 1 minute of glory in front of a highly influential audience.

Here's how to get involved: create a video to help viewers and fans understand your idea in a creative and engaging way. Making a pitch on a web cam is not what we are looking for! More like a laid back or funny video about your idea, company, and/or team. Just have fun with it! Once your video has been submitted, gather votes from friends, family, and anyone else you can - because the video with the most votes wins!

The top three videos will be shown at the HATCH Pitch event in front of their amazing audience of over 200 + well-connected investors, entrepreneurs, and judges! Creating something fun and engaging will capture the attention of this amazing audience and give you an extra boost of exposure at this noisy conference.

Voting close time is based on Central Standard Time (CST).

The top three videos with the most votes will be displayed during HATCH 2013 at SXSW Interactive in front of a room full of super cool and influential people that are looking to uncover the next big thing. That's right ... your video will command the attention of an overflowing room of 200+ people.
