You've got an extra hour, this weekend. Why not use it to work on these looming accelerator applications?

Regardless of your feelings about the modern day relevance of Daylight Saving Time, it’s over this weekend. Which means—unless you happen to be visiting Arizona or something—you sort of have an extra hour this weekend. So why don’t you use that hour to complete accelerator applications? I mean, really. It’s for your own good.

You’ve got two deadlines looming, the SXSW Accelerator and the Jaguar Land Rover Incubator.

SXSW Accelerator

The ninth annual SXSW Accelerator Pitch Event will take place at SXSW Startup Village on Saturday, March 11 and Sunday, March 12. A live audience, as well as a panel of expert judges, will discover advancements in various sectors of emerging technology.

SXSW Accelerator applications are due November 11, 2016. Applicants are charged a $220 entry fee but all applicants receive early bird pricing for tickets.

Jaguar Land Rover Incubator

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) is investing more than ever before in new technologies, skills, and facilities. Our innovation is continuous. The car of the future will become more capable, cleaner, more connected, more desirable and smarter. Our Incubator — part of our Open Source Technology Center — advances innovation for the entire automotive industry.

JLR Incubator applications are due November 14, 2016.
