TechCrunch is about to roll into Atlanta and New Orleans. You only have a few days left to apply for each meetup’s 60-second pitch-off. If you’re a budding startup in these cities, apply below to pitch to close to a thousand of your local peers. It’s free to apply and pitch. The deadline for applications is Monday, February 10th.
For the pitch-off, we will have 3-5 judges, including TechCrunch writers and local VCs, who will decide on the winners of the Pitch-off. First place will receive a table in Startup Alley at the upcoming TechCrunch Disrupt NY; second place will receive two tickets to TechCrunch Disrupt NY; and third place will receive one ticket.
If accepted, you’ll meet with John, Jordan or myself the day of the pitch-off. We can talk about your pitch, your company, or my love of the Midwest. It’s your time.
These meetups are an amazing time. They’re a mashup of networking event, drinking party and rowdy pitch-off. Load your pitch deck on a phone, stuff your blazer with business cards and come party with TechCrunch. Tickets are only $5 to attend. 21 and older only, please.
Then, in March, we’re hitting the road again and holding similar events in DC and NYC. After holding close to 25 of these events over the last two years, we can attest that they’re unique and a must-attend for the local scene. Come meet your neighbors. Introduce yourself to local investors. It’s a great night.
