HBCU Battle of the Brains Finals
March 15, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm CDT
Join us for the 2020 HBCU Battle of the Brains Finals on Sunday, March 15, 2020, at 3:30 PM CST at the JW Marriott, Ballroom D.
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 4th 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 Badge required for entry.
