Microsoft Bizspark is back again to sponsor the 2010 SXSW Accelerator program. Expanded to 2 days, this is a great showcase for emerging technology companies to get their product or service in front of the world. Accelerator takes place March 15-16th during the SXSW Interactive Festival. Who could forget judges such as Guy Kawasaki, whose insightful quips frequently became retweet material?
The format will be slightly different this year. 32 companies will be chosen to present on day one, and the top 12 will be invited to return on day two. If you make the top 12, you get to present in front of a whole new panel of judges and audience members. Last years winner, TubeMogul, has seen revenues triple and headcount double since last year’s program.
