Announcing A Grassroots Roundtable And 100 Tickets Available For TechCrunch MeetUp in Austin

Today, we are releasing 100 additional tickets for the TechCrunch Meet-Up in Austin, Texas with the team from Austin Ventures.  As previously reported, we are in town on Thursday, September 25 just in time for the Austin City Limits music festival.

Get your tickets now, as we only expect to release one additional round of tickets prior to the event.  We do have a handful of three day ACL passes, including backstage access and admission to the Austin Venture tent, to give away to sponsors and designated attendees.

Also, I will be hosting a Roundtable Discussion prior to the Pangaea Meet-Up, at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center located on the University of Texas at Austin campus.  This will be similar in format to the Mobile Web Wars Roundtable I hosted in July—two dozen founders, CEOs, VCs, and execs in a room talking about an issue, live streamed over the Web.  The theme of the Roundtable will be “The Web Starts at the Grassroots”.   It will focus on how to use the Web to build grassroots support for startups, brands, politicians, and social causes.  Look for a post from me later in the week with details on participants and access to tickets.  If you are interested in joining as a participant, please reach out to me via email this week.

The TechCrunch Austin Ventures Meet-Up will be held at Pangea, one of the hottest new venues in Austin. At Pangaea we will feature local start-ups and other sponsors, starting at 5:30 p.m. (central time) and running to 10:00 p.m. (or whenever they kick us out).

All of the proceeds from the TechCrunch Austin Ventures Meet-Up will benefit the Lance Armstrong Foundation, an organization uniting people to fight cancer – believing that unity is strength, knowledge is power and attitude is everything.

In addition to releasing tickets for the Austin Meet-Up, sponsorship opportunities and demo tables are now available for companies to show off their products. If you want to support the event, please contact Jeanne Logozzo or Heather Harde. If you are a member of the press wanting to cover the event, please contact Sarah Ross.

Attendee identification will be checked at the door. Tickets are not transferable and not refundable. If you use your name to purchase multiple tickets, your guests must arrive with you to check in at the door.

We look forward to seeing you in Austin.
