Realty Mogul Sweeps HATCH Pitch Competition at #SXSW

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2013-03-11

Realty Mogul, a graduate of the Los Angeles Founder Institute, has been snagging the attention of media and real estate investors since their graduation in the Spring of 2012. Now on the verge of completing the Microsoft Biz Spark Azure program in Seattle, Founder and CEO Jilliene Helman has not only been busy entertaining journalists, but she’s winning major pitch competitions too.

Just this past weekend, the West Coast based startup (which has offices in both Seattle and Los Angeles), took first place at the HATCH pitch competition at the South by Southwest conference in Austin. A relatively new event sponsored by the Houston Technology Center, HATCH drew in hundreds of applicants from around the world, ultimately selecting 12 finalists to pitch on stage. Realty Mogul, which describes themselves as “crowdfunding for real estate” earned their number one spot with an enthusiastic and memorable pitch which judges later described as ‘histrionic’.

Each judge virtually had $1 million to invest across the 12 finalist. In the end, the startup with the most capital ‘raised’ was deemed the winner. Molecule Software, a Houston based company that simplifies trading of stocks for small energy companies landed second, with Austin startup, Taskbox trailing in third.
