The popular blockchain security firm Quantstamp has been selected as one of the finalists in SXSW Pitch’s Blockchain category at Startups Track.

Formerly known as SXSW Accelerator, SXSW Pitch is the main event of South by Southwest (SXSW) Conference & Festivals, which will take place between March 13 – 22, 2020. The Startups Track panel invites startups from around the world who present impressive technology innovations in front of a live audience and hand-picked judges.

When knowing that the total number of applicants for SXSW Pitch 2020 is 937, being selected into the 50 finalists is a good testimonial for Quantstamp. Some of the previous finalists, such as Hipmunk, Klout, and Wildfire, have successfully raised more than $6.6 billion in funding and alumni.

Quantstamp’s Co-Founder and CEO, Richard Ma, was pleased:

“We’re honored to participate in the SXSW Pitch and share how we’re helping our enterprise clients harness the power of this technology,” adding that “A lot of companies have the desire to incorporate blockchain technology, but aren’t sure where to start. We help companies interested in blockchain technology try it out and see if it fits their business model.”

The two-day event will be held on the fourth floor of the Downtown Hilton Austin, Salon D/E on March 14 and 15 and will round off with the 2020 SXSW Pitch Awards Ceremony. During the ceremony, each category’s winning startup will be announced, including a best-in-show winner.

Quantstamp is working on safer and more reliable future of blockchain apps. The company aids enterprises across various sectors in deploying blockchain solutions in a secure manner. Some of the companies that trust Quantstamp and helped them secure $1.5 billion of digital asset value are Maker, Siemens, and Kakao.

SXSW Pitch Event Producer Chris Valentine greeted the finalists:

“We’re excited to see this year’s impressive group of startups take to the stage and show us how their innovations will change the world. For over a decade, SXSW Pitch has played a pivotal role in shaping the early-stage venture ecosystem, giving promising companies the resources they need to succeed when it matters most and providing high profile exposure through judges from key industry players such as Amazon and Google X.”
