TechCrunch Is Headed To Grand Rapids For A Mini-Meetup And Pitchoff

Join John Biggs and myself next week in Grand Rapids, Michigan for a mini-meetup and pitch-off. We’ll be at Start Garden’s new space on Thursday, May 21 from 5:00 – 8:00. The bar opens at 5:00 and the pitches start at 5:30. The event is free to attend and I’m sure the open bar will feature some great Michigan beers. Please RSVP here.

Five local startups will present their company to John, myself and Joe Malcoun, CEO of Nutshell and an Ann Arbor investor.

Situated equal distance between Detroit and Chicago, Grand Rapids and the surrounding region has long been a vibrant community home to an insane amount of industrial designers. It’s a lovely place and John and I are excited to see some of the area’s startups (and breweries).
