For the second year in a row, TechCrunch is holding a pitch-off competition in New York City. We’re stoked and are looking for a few of the regions best undiscovered startups to pitch to a panel of judges and TechCrunch editors. Last year’s event was a blast and we’re hoping for another great show. Apply below.
General admission tickets are also available for $5 and grant the holder a couple of beers and entrance into what will surely be a fantastic night.
These events are part social gathering and part pitch-off competition where local startups or makers have 60 seconds to pitch their company or product to local VCs and TechCrunch editors. These products must currently be in stealth or private beta and be located from the NYC region.
Office hours are for companies selected for the pitch-off. These 15-minute, one-on-one 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 rapid-fire competition. Think of us as Adam Levine on The Voice.
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 NY; second place will receive two tickets to TechCrunch Disrupt NY; and third place will receive one ticket to TechCrunch Disrupt NY.
