TechCrunch Radio is going down tonight (just like it does every Tuesday) and… well, we need you.
If you’re a startup looking to get publicity or build awareness, the TC Radio Pitch-Off is just the ticket. We offer entrepreneurs the opportunity to apply to be in the pitch-off and those selected are given 60 seconds exactly to pitch their product to the world (and a panel of expert judges including myself, John Biggs, and a special mystery guest from the VC world).
Five companies compete every week, and only one is crowned the winner after a live, on-radio deliberation.
But TC Radio is about much more than the fierce battle of pitching startups. John Biggs and I also discuss the most important tech news from the week at the top of the hour, and encourage listeners to call in and discuss these topics with us.
Is any of this interesting to you?
If you want to be a part of the pitch-off, follow the instructions below. Interested listeners, simply hit up Sirius XM Insight 121 at 6pm ET/3pm PT (and again at 6pm PT) to listen in.
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.
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.
