Only One Week To Submit Your Application For 1st And Future

There is just over one week until applications close for 1st and Future, the startup competition that TechCrunch is staging with the NFL and Stanford University on February 6 at Stanford’s CEMEX Auditorium. Get your application in today.

Four startups will compete for top honors in each of the competition’s three categories: Tomorrow’s Athlete, Bringing Home the Game and The Future Stadium. The winners of each theme will receive $50K, two tickets to Super Bowl 50 (which will be held just down the road at Levi’s Stadium), and a visit with NFL’s investment team.

Similar to our Startup Battlefield competition, each startup will have five minutes to present their idea and demo their product before facing a live Q&A session with our judges who will be announced soon — TechCrunch and the NFL are working to bring together the best investor, product and consumer minds in the sports world.

Following the pitch-off there will be a reception with pitch-off attendees, NFL team owners and other VIPs. In other words words, this is not your average pitch-off. So if your company has raised a Series A round or less, has a working prototype and fits one of our categories, then what are you waiting for?

Learn more and apply here. TechCrunch will be live-streaming the event on Feb. 6 starting at 8:30 a.m. so start your Super Bowl Weekend right and mark that on your calendar.
