Boston in the fall. There’s nothing like it. Leaves are falling, a crisp wind blows in from the bay, and the particular pencils being sharpened are owned by Harvard, Boston College, and MIT students. That said, TechCrunch can’t help but pay a visit to one of the oldest cities in the nation to enjoy some of the newest technological innovations New England has to offer.
Who’s ready for the Boston TC Meetup + Pitch-Off?
The event will be held on Wednesday, November 13 from 6pm to 10pm at The Estate.
Tickets are $5 and include a drink ticket (meaning you need to be 21 or older). There will be tons of networking opportunities, and then we start in on the pitch-off competition.
Anywhere between 15 and 25 entrepreneurs will pitch their startup ideas to a panel of expert judges, including TechCrunch staffers and local VCs, with only sixty seconds to impress and excite the judges and the audience. There are absolutely no visual aids or demoes.
At the end of the night, judges and the audience will vote on the best pitch of the night and winners will be announced. 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.
We’re still looking for entrepreneurs to pitch, so if that sounds like you, head over here to apply. Just remember, these products must currently be in stealth or private beta.
Those chosen to participate in the pitch-off will also join us for Office Hours, where you’ll get one-on-one meetings with a member of the TechCrunch editorial staff to discuss the product and pitch ahead of time.
But whether you’re an entrepreneur, a student, or a fan of technology, it should be an amazing night.
See you there!
