Meetup. New Orleans. Tonight.

We’re here and we’re overjoyed to be in New Orleans for our first TechCrunch event in your fine city. Tonight’s meetup and pitch-off will be great, and we need everyone to come out.

The doors open at 6:00 and the pitch-off will start later in the evening. We’ve lined up 15 great local companies to pitch to the crowd and a few judges.

A few tickets are still available. They’re just $5 and grant the holder to a night of pitches, drinking and meeting your local tech scene (21 and older only, please).

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. Second Place will receive two tickets to the upcoming TechCrunch Disrupt. Third Place will receive one ticket to the upcoming TechCrunch Disrupt.

Stuff your hipster jacket full of business cards and come on out. Grab a ticket below.

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