Since Austin and Seattle have very little in common (other than awesome startups), I don’t have a very clever way of starting out this post. Luckily, I don’t really need one. The TechCrunch Meetups are awesome all on their own.
In June, TechCrunch is hitting up Austin (June 10) and Seattle (June 12) to bring our TC Pitch-Offs out West. Select startups will have exactly 60 seconds to pitch their idea to a panel of local VC judges and TechCrunch staff. Oh, and a jam-packed audience of the local tech community.
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.
And if you’re not an entrepreneur, or your company isn’t quite ready to present, we still want to hang out. There will be beer, cool startups to discover, and a whole lot of good times.
Here are the important deets:
6pm – Doors Open
7pm – Pitch-Off
8pm – Winners Announced
8:15pm – Networking
10pm – Goodnight
Local startups and larger tech companies alike are invited to become a sponsor or exhibitor. For more information on how to sponsor these events, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
