Yonder is a 2020 SXSW Innovation Awards Finalist
We’re thrilled to share the news that today, Yonder was named a finalist for the **23rd annual South by [Southwest® (SXSW®) Innovation Awards**](https://www.sxsw.com/awards/innovation-awards/), which recognize and celebrate some of the most exciting tech developments in the connected world.
From hundreds of applications submitted, Yonder was selected as one of 65 finalists across categories including AI & Machine Learning, Culture & Social Impact, Smart Cities, and more for our work in identifying internet faction tactics and their escalation paths from web subcultures into the mainstream. Yonder’s platform uncovers the intent of influential online groups and the conversations they’re having—so organizations can navigate an unpredictable, ever-evolving internet with confidence.
Yonder's Founder & CEO explains how you can protect your brand equity and grow your business with an understanding of how hyper-active interest groups called factions start and spread trends online.
Yonder (formerly, New Knowledge) convened and participated in last year’s SXSW panel, “Disinformation 2019: Brands in the Crosshairs”.
If you’re heading to SXSW, come by our booth at the Innovation Awards Finalist Showcase on Saturday, March 14, 12-6 pm CT at the Austin Convention Center to talk factions, trolls, bots, memes, deep fakes, and what Yonder is doing to make the internet a less scary, more authentic place for everyone.
