SXSW Accelerator Awards

Updated: Monday, June 2 2014, 01:03 AM CDT

The sixth annual SXSW Accelerator pitch event wrapped up Sunday night at the Downtown Austin Hilton with the First Annual SXSW Accelerator Awards. 

Forty-eight companies from around the globe were selected as finalists.  Each pitched their concept in front of a live audience and a panel of judges.  The field of 48 was reduced to 18, and after another presentation, winners were announced in each of the six categories. 

Since it began, $490 million in funding has gone to 71 companies who have participated in Accelerator.

Here are this year’s winners

Innovative World Technologies - Synbiota
