South by Southwest Eco wrapped Friday. As we landed back in Kansas City, we brought with us a renewed sense of purpose and enthusiasm. The presentations and panels were enlightening. The speakers were engaging, and people we met are sure to shape the future of sustainability.
For us, an especially exciting part of the Conference was the Startup Showcase. We were thrilled to be among 14 semi-finalists on the cutting edge of clean tech. Each presentation was smart and inspiring. A three-minute pitch to a panel of investors and a live audience landed us among three finalists. When the announcement came that PlanetReuse had won the final 8-minute round followed by Q&A, we couldn't believe it!
We would like to thank SXSWEco conference organizers, Startup Showcase sponsors Autodesk
and the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center
and the many supporters who encourage us everyday. We believe deeply in our mission and are working every day to make reuse easy and a no-nonsense choice for anyone who wants to save money, time and ultimately the planet. The fact that you do too…well, that's the biggest reward of all.
