You have until 11:59 PM next Friday, April 11, to enter your great ideas for speakers, panels, workshops, and mentors into the SXSW PanelPicker. Ideas that have already been started in PanelPicker must be completed and submitted by 11:59 PM April 11 as well. Remember, if you have entered an idea into the PanelPicker for any other SXSW event, you can use your existing account for V2V. And be sure to check out our Tips of PanelPicker Success post from last week for help in making your proposal the best it can be.

Innovative startups also have until 11:59 PM next Friday, April 11, to enter their projects for a chance to square off in V2Venture, our all-day live pitch competition. Five finalists in each of five entry categories will take the stage in front of a live audience, and a panel of expert judges led by MC Christine Herron from Intel Capital. Companies that fit the qualifications can apply here.

PanelPicker be will open for public votes and comments April 21 through May 9, with programming announced on May 21. V2Venture finalists will be announced on June 9.
