Buckle up, NYC and Washington D.C., because we have a sick roster of Pitch-Off companies for this week’s meetups.
We’ll be hitting D.C. on March 18, at The Park at Fourteenth, and then we’ll rock on over to my turf in New York City to hang out with Silicon Alley at Santos Party House. As per usual, our meetups are full of booze and networking, as well as a pitch competition which will give about a dozen startups just 60 seconds to impress a panel of judges.
We’ve already announced the incredible local VCs judging our DC meetup, as well as a guest appearance and on-stage interview with SmartThings CTO Jeff Hagins, and our NYC-based judges will be revealed shortly. In both cases, we’ve wrangled some of the greatest minds and most generous wallets in each city, so who knows? Maybe we’ll see the birth of a few deals right before our eyes.
The full list of companies competing in both cities can be found below.
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.
Are you a funded startup? Local employer? A company looking for a few good code ninjas? Consider emailing Sponsors@techcrunch.com to help support the event. If you’d like to exhibit, please pop over to Eventbrite. The goal is to make this a great event for everyone and we can’t do that without your help. Bootstrapping and can’t afford a table? Let John or myself know. Matt@techcrunch.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to our current sponsors, tickets to both events are just $5 and can be found here (DC) and here (NYC). However, tomorrow our early bird pricing will end and tickets will jump to $10. In other words, move now.
Age 21 and up, please.
