“The show must go on.”
That’s what they’re telling us as a blizzard pummels the northeast. So if we can make sure that TechCrunch Radio on Sirius XM Indie 102 carries on, we will. We simply ask that you apply to be a part of the show and be around to call into the show on Tuesday at 6pm ET/3pm PT.
TechCrunch Radio is an hour of geeky bliss as John and I go through the week’s biggest news and then head into our world-famous TechCrunch Pitch-off, where five companies are given sixty seconds to pitch their startup live on the radio. A panel of judges, including a guest VC, John and myself, will deliberate live and declare and winner, and we’ll all go home to our warm beds.
Oh, and one of the five pitch-off companies will be chosen live during the radio show. That means that the only way you can get the right phone number and fill the slot is to listen along live or pay attention to the @TechCrunch Twitter account during the show.
Here are the details you need to participate:
1. You must have a product that is available to general users. No sign-up pages or pre-orders with a TBD ship date. There must be a link we can give to listeners/readers where they can access your product, service, what have you.
2. You must be an early stage company. If you have raised a Series A or later, you are disqualified. Bootstrapped or seed stage startups are welcome.
3. You must be able to pitch your product with your words only.
4. You must be able to operate a telephone.
It’s going to be a hoot!
Each week, TechCrunch Radio will air Tuesdays at 6:00 pm ET with a replay at 6:00 pm PT, drive time for both coasts, on Indie, channel 102, and through the SiriusXM Internet Radio App on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online at siriusxm.com. Subscribers will also be able to listen via SiriusXM On Demand through the SiriusXM Internet Radio App for smartphones and other mobile devices and online at siriusxm.com.
