You may associate TechCrunch with the sunny climes of Northern California, but we’re ready to make it rain. We’re bringing our TC Meetups + Pitch-Off to the great, tech-centric city of Seattle. You can expect beer, great conversation, and a battle to the death to see which entrepreneurs can dazzle and excite in under sixty seconds. I mentioned there would be beer, right?
You can sign up for the event here. We are charging a nominal fee of $5 which gets you a few beers and a lot of networking opportunities. TC editors will be on hand to talk about your pitches and we’ll have a great program of on-stage events. The event will be at ShowBox at the Market on July 18 from 6pm to 10pm.
Participants interested in competing in the pitch-off will have 60 seconds to explain why their startup is awesome. These products must currently be in stealth or private beta. Applications are here.
We will have 3-5 judges, including TechCrunch writers and local VCs, who will decide on the winners of the Pitch-Off. First place will receive a table in Startup Alley at the upcoming TechCrunch Disrupt. Second place will receive 2 tickets to the upcoming TechCrunch Disrupt. Third place will receive 1 ticket to the upcoming TechCrunch Disrupt.
We’re really looking forward to Seattle – it’s been far too long since we’ve been back to the home of Microsoft and Amazon and it looks like it’s going to be an amazing event.
