70MillionJobs chosen as a Finalist for SXSW Accelerator Pitch Event

We are humbled and excited to announce that we have been chosen among 600 applicants to be one of 50 finalists in the South by Southwest® Accelerator Pitch Event. The event spans across 10 categories, and we will be showcasing in the Social and Culture Technologies category — as the first for-profit recruitment platform for the 70 million Americans with criminal records.

The SXSW Accelerator Pitch Event is the marquee event of South by Southwest® (SXSW®) Conference & Festivals (March 9–18, 2018) Startup & Tech Sectors Track. We will pitch our company in front of a live audience and selected judges, followed by a Q&A. We will be represented by our CEO/founder Richard Bronson:

“We’re thrilled to be part of SXSW,” said Richard, “Almost everyone knows someone with a record, and they know that effectively means a life sentence as long as there’s a Google search to check backgrounds. Our goal is to land one million jobs for folks with records and help repair their lives, their families and their communities.”

Wish us luck!
