LeWeb Startup Competition to be organized in partnership with TechCrunch Europe

I’m delighted to announce that this year’s Startup Competition at LeWeb, the annual gathering of global technology luminaries and startups in Paris, will be organized in partnership with TechCrunch Europe. We’ve been running startup events all over Europe for some time now — so I hope to be able to inject our experience into this great event.

Like last year, the LeWeb Startup Competition will have a dedicated room and stage. A total of 20 startups/applications will be selected to demonstrate a new product live on stage at the event. The winners of this competition will then have a chance to present their companies on the LeWeb main stage during a special session the following day. More after the jump.

All the details are on the submission page here, so please go and enter the new product you’d like to launch. The format of the competition will be a 6 minute presentation on stage. The application deadline for the The StartUp competition is OCTOBER 10th, 2009. Good luck to all.
