As one of the finalists of the South by Southwest Accelerator, we are excited that we will be presenting Surfly this coming March in Austin. Not every year is a startup from the Netherlands nominated for this event… or perhaps it is?

There seemed to be no clear list of all the previous finalists, so we decided to collect the data ourselves. While gathering the data, we came across some interesting information about previous finalists. Did you know that most of the winners of the Accelerator come from the USA? The only two winners that were not USA based came from the UK and Finland.

The fact that only three European startups have won the competition thus far and that until 2013 there have been only two Dutch nominations, made us even more enthusiastic. We are looking forward to presenting Surfly in a 2-minute pitch at the Hilton Austin downtown on Saturday, March 8.

To share the collected data and interesting facts with you, we put everything into a great infographic.

We’ve also created an infographic of the finalists of the 2014 SXSW Accelerator.
