SXSW Accelerator Application Submitted

on November 2, 2012 Conferences, News with 0 comments

It’s official — we just submitted our application to enter Smart Sign Out in the fifth annual SXSW Interactive Accelerator, under the category of Health Technologies. The conference takes place March 8-17, 2013 in Austin, TX this year.

The health technologies category is described as:

This category is about patient-centric health applications and technologies that connect patients, families, physicians, pharmacists, care providers (hospitals, clinics) and benefit providers – aka the care team – to share timely, relevant health data and drive better outcomes at affordable and sustainable cost levels.


We’re really excited about the possibility of having the opportunity to participate in an accelerator program. This program would serve as an excellent launching pad for our health startup, and would help us improve our product, polish our pitch, build brand awareness, and network.

We know our sign out app is a perfect fit for the health technologies category. Sharing timely, relevant health data among care providers is the name of our game.

A glimpse into the SXSW Accelerator process:

This competition will be unlike any other. On March 11, 48 companies battle for your taste-making, trend-setting attention, leading to a fireworks display of innovation. Connections will be made and careers launched. On Tuesday March 12, the top 18 companies will be invited back, and at the end of the day winners of SXSW Accelerator will be announced.


Sounds like an intense couple of days. We say bring it. Now all that’s left to do is wait.
