We are excited to announce our 12 finalists for HATCH 2013! These companies were selected from around the world and the competition has been fierce. Applicants were evaluated based on factors such as:

  • How revolutionary is the idea? What impact will it make on the world?
  • What’s the product? What problem does it solve and for whom?
  • What’s the market?
  • What’s great about the startup founders and team?

Our selection committee had a tough task narrowing down to 12 finalists and were impressed with the quality of applications received. We’d like to thank everyone for applying and wish the best to all companies, regardless of HATCH status!

Without further ado, here are the companies who will be presenting 4 minute pitches to our great judges on HATCH day:

Congratulations to our finalists! More information about each company can be found at www.hatchpitch.com/startups. We’re looking forward to working with each team in the next week or so to prepare the best pitches possible. To see the final product, join us at HATCH 2013 – Sunday, March 10, 2013 starting at 9:30am at the Hilton Downtown Austin.
