SXSW has been crazy as $#%$.
We're here at the South by Southwest Interactive Festival in Austin, TX and we've been doing interviews, demos, and pitches left and right. All this attention were getting is directly related to YOU folks, so thanks again for your support!
We won (!) Startup America's Video Pitch Contest! This granted us the opportunity to pitch at their kick-off event. Here is the winning pitch (kinda a silly video but hey, it worked) and here is a picture of us pitching on stage:
At the end of the day, the CNN crew filmed us cruising around their tour bus.
We were told the interviews and riding footage will air on Saturday (3/17). We'll update you folks with the exact time and date when we find out.
Overall the last few days have been nuts and the next three are sure to be similar.
Thanks again so much for everyone's support and check back in for more updates.
If you're on twitter, and you follow folks who are at SXSW (friends, media peeps, celebs, etc), tell em to find us and ride the ZBoard! Tweet 'em something like:
Hey @aplusk you should find those @ZBoard guys from @Kickstarter at #SXSWi and go for a ride! http://youtu.be/j6HAYuNAGzs
Whoever gets the coolest person to tweet about us or meet up with us for a ride will win a t-shirt and decal! Actually, scratch that. EVERYONE who gets influential twitter peeps to tweet about us or meet up with us will get a t-shirt and decal!
Contest ends 3/13. We'll contact the winners through twitter.
