The TC Meetup + Pitch-Off Is Invading San Diego On August 22

Baseball season is in full swing and football is around the corner, but there’s one other competitive sport that’s heating up. The TechCrunch Meetup + Pitch-Off is invading San Diego on Tuesday, August 22.

That’s right, folks. It’s game time!

The event will start at 6pm and last until 10pm at Block 16.

We’re looking for all the best and brightest entrepreneurs of Southern California to hop on our stage, pitch their product in sixty seconds, and ultimately be judged by their peers and a panel of expert judges.

These startups get no presentation materials or demoes — words only in a minute flat. If that sounds like something you’re interested in, apply to be a part of our Pitch-Off (form embedded below), and if accepted, you’ll get a one-on-one Office Hours Session with Greg Kumparak, Matt Burns, or myself.

We will have 3-5 judges, including TechCrunch writers and local VC’s, who will decide on the winners of the Pitch-off. 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. Companies chosen to participate will be notified one week before the event.

But if you’re not down to compete, that’s just fine. We’re meeting up to talk tech, build the community, and throw back a few cold ones. That said, the $5 ticket comes with a drink ticket and the requirement that you are 21+.
