As TechCrunch powers through the major tech hubs of the world we’ve consistently missed Boston. That’s about to change. I’m pleased to announce our second Boston meetup on November 13, 2013, at the Estate, 1 Boylston Pl .
These meetups offer you guys the chance to hang out with TechCrunch writers and editors and take part in our pitch-offs, contests that allow start-ups from all over the world to compete to win a table at TechCrunch Disrupt in New York or San Francisco. The meetup will cost $5 to attend and include booze and lots of networking.
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. We also offer Office Hours during our visit to your city. Office Hours are for companies selected for the Pitch-off, these 15 minute 1 on 1 talks will be held on the day of the event. We’ll hear about your company, give feedback, and talk about the best pitch strategy for the 60-second rapid-fire competition. Think of us as Adam Levine on The Voice. More information on Office Hours will follow in a post on TechCrunch.
We will have 3-5 judges, including TechCrunch writers and local VC’s, who will decide on the winners of the Pitch-off. First place will receive a table in Start Up 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.
If you have any questions you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and if you’d like to sponsor the event drop the folks at email@example.com a line. We’re looking forward to rolling into Boston and hope to see you there!
