Pavewise Selected as Finalist 2024 SXSW Pitch in the Smart Cities, Transportation & Sustainability Category
Pavewise has been selected as a finalist in the Smart Cities, Transportation & Sustainability category for the 15th annual SXSW Pitch (formerly SXSW Accelerator).
SXSW Pitch, presented by KPMG, is the marquee event of South by Southwest® (SXSW®) Conference & Festivals (March 8 – 16, 2024), where leading startups from around the world showcase some of the most impressive technology innovations to a panel of hand-picked judges and a live audience. Out of the 670 companies that applied to present at SXSW Pitch 2024, Pavewise was selected among the 45 finalists spanning nine separate categories.
The two-day SXSW Pitch event will be held the first weekend of SXSW Conference & Festivals, Saturday, March 9 and Sunday, March 10, on the fourth floor of the Downtown Hilton Austin, Salon D/E. The event will then culminate with the 2024 SXSW Pitch Awards Ceremony on Sunday evening, March 10, where winning startups from each category and a Best in Show winner will be announced and honored in Salon H on the sixth floor of the Hilton Hotel.
SXSW Pitch will feature finalists across the following nine categories: Artificial Intelligence, Robotics & Voice, Enterprise & Smart Data, Entertainment, Media & Content, Extended Reality and Web3, Food, Nutrition & Health, Future of Work, Innovative World Technologies, Smart Cities, Transportation & Logistics and Student Startup.
Pavewise will present among four other companies in the Smart Cities, Transportation & Sustainability category on Saturday, March 9th.
“We are so excited to be a part of SXSW this year. I’ve been in construction and asphalt paving specifically for the better part of two decades and want to help with some of the pain,” said Bryce Wuori, the CEO and co-founder of Pavewise. “Being a part of SXSW gives us a far-reaching platform to show other people what we’re working on now. I can’t wait!”
“Excited to show off what we’ve been working on for the last year,” said Jase Kraft, the CTO at Pavewise. “Revolutionizing an industry that impacts everyone can be a slow process, but presenting at events like SXSW speeds that up. I’m so excited!”
“SXSW Pitch has been committed to supporting the startup community since its inception in 2009. Since then, the entire event has had a significant impact on the early-stage venture ecosystem providing the resources needed for a startup to grow even through the toughest conditions,” said SXSW Pitch Event Producer Chris Valentine. “The 45 companies selected as finalists this year showed incredible promise and a new level of innovation. We are looking forward to having these startups take the stage in March to present their technologies to our panel of expert judges.”
