The SXSW accelerator, in its sixth year, always draws a great crowd as entrepreneurs give lightning pitches before a talented panel of industry-savvy judges. I listened in on some of the pitches Saturday coming from finalists with solutions in the enterprise and big data space. AddSearch, from Helsinki, pitched their solution for single-line-of-code site search in a space that could be considered stagnant but still competitive. It takes some serious chutzpah to make the case you can improve search, but AddSearch claims their easy installation, mobile support, stats, and lightning results will open some eyes.
