More fintech is coming to Austin.
The massive South by Southwest conference and festival features startups in a number of categories — transportation, augmented/virtual reality, and of course fintech — plus several others. The event is the 9th annual pitch session for SXSW’s accelerator. Austin is known for having a thriving fintech scene, featuring such standouts as Q2, Kasasa, and Malauzai. Five more companies are joining the fray, at least temporarily. They are:
Envudu is a budgeting app that employs digital envelopes — a mix of old-school and newfangled saving tech.
Hip Pocket offers Hip Money, a tool that allows savers to put money aside with a single click. Hip Pocket was DEMOvation company at Bank Innovation 2015, and CEO/founder Mark Zmarzly is an INV Fintech mentor.
Kickfurther is a crowdfunding play that allows users to invest in new businesses and help get their products to market.
