Thanks, New Orleans: The Meetup Is On!

Good news, everybody! Everything is really looking up in New Orleans and we’re on track to at least beat a few of the smaller cities we’ve visited in terms of tickets sold. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t buy your pass to the big show early, however, and we still want you there. Please, buy your tickets today so we can get an accurate headcount for next week.

These events are part social gathering and part pitch-off competition where startups or makers have 60 seconds to pitch their company or product to local VCs and TechCrunch editors. These products must currently be in stealth or private beta.

Remember, we’ll also have a pitch-off and we’ve already picked 15 great startups. 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 to TechCrunch Disrupt NY.

General admission tickets are available for $5 and grant the holder a couple of beers and entrance into what will surely be a fantastic night. Buy them below.

As always, if you want to sponsor contact our team at sponsors@beta.techcrunch.com.
