TechCrunch offers a variety of opportunities to get the word out about your new company. The Disrupt Battlefield is the biggest, but we also travel to various cities and hold pitch-off events, and each week John Biggs and I hold a 60-second pitch-off competition on the TechCrunch Radio show on Sirius XM.
Five companies get exactly one minute to impress us and a guest VC judge. We’ll ask a few questions after each pitch and then deliberate live on the air to determine a winner.
But that’s not all.
For the first half of the hour-long show, John Biggs and I discuss the latest in tech news, from cool new apps to unannounced gadgetry to mergers and acquisitions that have industry-wide effects. We also welcome people to call in during the show.
If you want to listen in, or more importantly, if you want to participate in the TC Radio Pitch-Off, keep reading for details:
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!
