PragueCrunch III is already sold out and I’m getting ready to pick startups for our pitch-off next Thursday. That means you have less than 12 hours to submit your startup to the fray. You’re going to want to be part of this.

If we release more tickets, I’ll let you know in a post tomorrow or via my Twitter account. I’m not in charge of the venue so I don’t know if we’ll have room for extra attendees. That said, those of you who got free tickets are extremely lucky – the entire event will be catered with a nice open bar thanks to our sponsors and our organizer, Jack Deneut.

The event will be held on Thursday, July 3, 2014 from 6:00 PM to 11:00 PM (PDT) at Hergetova cihelna (2b Cihelná) and we’ll have free beer and wine as well as catered food all night. We’ll be holding a startup pitch off – each founder will pitch for 90 seconds and there will be eight startups on stage – and the winner gets a free table in Startup Alley at TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco or London and one runner-up gets two tickets to TechCrunch Disrupt in SF or London. Judges will be chosen from the local community. Myself and Natasha Lomas will be in attendance so put on your pitching pants and practice your elevator speech.

You do not have to be a Czech start-up to apply. All are welcome. Pitches are in English and I’m closing applications tonight at midnight.

This year’s PragueCrunch is sponsored by Avast, the Czech-based anti-virus app. It’s also sponsored by Credo Ventures, a VC firm that focuses on early stage tech investments in Central Europe.

We’ll have more information soon but until then, get ready: TechCrunch is coming back to Prague.
