I’m excited to announce that my side project, LucidTour has been officially chosen as a semi-finalist for the 2014 SXSW Pitch Competition hosted by Silicon Hills News, Austin Technology Incubator, Central Texas Angel Network, and VentureBeat. “The caliber of these local Austin firms is up there with any nationwide competition out there.” Read all about it here, my friends. \
