HBCU Battle of the Brains Finals
March 10 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm CDT
Join us for the 2019 HBCU Battle of the Brains Finals on Sunday, March 10, 2019, at 3:30 PM CST at the Hilton Austin, Salon C, presented by our Title Sponsor, the NFL.
Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) from across the country are sending their best and brightest students to Austin during SXSW! Long-standing and new rivals will “battle” it out, academically, for a chance to win more than $50K in scholarship prizes, as well as bragging rights, at the 3rd Annual HBCU Battle of the Brains (#HBCUBotBrains) competition.
Thirty HBCU teams will present a business case, and in 24-hours, provide a variety of solutions from a business, marketing, digital media, and technology perspective. Finalists will then present their solutions to a panel of industry-leading judges as they compete for $50,000 and the title of HBCU Battle of the Brains Champions.
SXSW Platinum or Interactive Badge is required for entry.
