Are you ready for the Madness?
Student Startup Madness (SSM) is a nationwide tournament-style competition for college student digital media startups, culminating with the “Entrepreneurial Eight” national finals at South By Southwest (SXSW) Interactive.
SSM has been an official program of SXSW and the SXSW Startup Village for the last two years. In 2013, the SSM Finals took place in the main SXSW Startup Village venue in the Hilton Downtown Hotel in Austin, TX, on Saturday, March 9th, and featured teams from Emory, Illinois, Michigan State, RPI, St. Louis, Stanford, UC Berkeley, and UT Austin pitching to a judging panel of well-known entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and investors.
The 2012-13 Student Startup Madness National Champion was Michigan State’s TempoRun. (See official announcement)
