New York City, get ready for an epic night of rapid fire pitches from your area’s best startups. But we’re still on the hunt for startups to pitch. The application is below. Apply before March 12th.
On March 20, TechCrunch is holding a meetup and pitch-off in your glorious city. There will be drinks, startups and the most of New York’s roaring tech scene. All are welcome, but space is limited. Tickets are only $5 until March 17, when they’ll jump to $10. Sponsorship and demo tables are also available.
These events are part social gathering and part pitch-off competition where local 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 and be located in the DC region.
Office hours are for companies selected for the Pitch-Off. These 15-minute, one-on-one talks will be held on the day of the event. We’ll hear about your company, give feedback, and talk about the best pitch strategy for the rapid-fire competition. Think of us as Adam Levine on The Voice.
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.
There are plenty of sponsorship opportunities for local and national startups. Email our sponsorship team at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
See you there!
