Winter is slowly turning to spring here in New York City, which makes our trip up to the Sirius XM studios each Tuesday far more attractive. So naturally, we’re more excited than ever to catch up with you fine entrepreneurs in next week’s episode of TechCrunch Radio.
As per usual, we’ll start out the show by talking about the latest in tech and startup news, and then transition into our weekly TC Radio Pitch-Off, where five companies will have exactly 60 seconds to pitch their product live to a panel of judges, including John Biggs, myself, and an expert VC.
We’ll take a couple of minutes after each pitch to ask questions and get our thoughts sorted, and at the end of the show we’ll announce our winner live.
It’s always a good time, but it doesn’t work without the participation of brilliant entrepreneurs. Which is my way of passive-aggressively asking you to apply to be a part of our pitch-off. Or just listen to the show. Whatever works for you.
Here are all the deets:
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!
