Skimble’s action recap of SXSW 2010 & Microsoft BizSpark Accelerator Competition – Top 3!

It’s been about a week since Skimble (literally) rocked SXSW 2010.?? We made the most out of the Microsoft BizSpark Accelerator startup pitch competition by promoting healthy lifestyles at a conference that may, at first glance, seem far from.??

Skimble placed Top 3 in the Innovative Web Technology category at SXSW Accelerator 2010 and received valuable feedback from expert judges including Guy Kawasaki, Paul Graham of Y Combinator, Marshall Kirkpatrick of ReadWriteWeb, and Chris Sacca of lowercase capital (stunned!).

Here’s a recap of our SXSW adventure and what people we’re saying about Skimble:

“the most memorable moment of the day goes to Maria Ly, founder of Skimble, who performed a 30-second exercise jam which included backflips, and legs pulled behind her head – while flipping open a phone. Though, we’re sure that’s not the only reason Skimble – a platform to track, plan and share sports and recreation activities with friends – made the cut!”

“The final contestant to take the stage was Skimble and if there’s one thing we can say, it’s that co-founder Maria Ly did it with style…This woman is living what she’s preaching.”

Out ‘n about at SXSW, Team Skimble looked their ‘active’ best:

We also made sure to say hi to the nice folks at PayPal’s SXSW booth and demo the Skimble application:

Before SXSW Interactive ended, Tim Ferriss of The 4-Hour Workweek ‘muscled up’ some Skimble love:

‘S’ is for Skimble:

Here are some of our friends enjoying the Austin sun:

Nothing stopped us from doing some yoga at Lululemon Athletica, urban run/walking downtown and bouldering at Austin Rock Gym South in between SXSW events.
