TechCrunch is going to Tel Aviv on June 22

We’re announcing our very first formal Meetup + Pitch-off in Tel Aviv, presented by Leumi Tech, with Blonde 2.0. Israel remains one of the world’s key producers of startups and cutting-edge technology, so it would be remiss of us not to get the TechCrunch community together there. The event will be on June 22, at Trask, between 6-10 p.m.

Applications for the pitch-off and ticket sales will open May 12. Sign up for our newsletter to be notified when ticket sales open.

We’ll select approximately 10 great startups to explain to our panel of VCs and TechCrunch editors in two minutes or less why their startup is awesome. They’ll be competing for an opportunity to attend TechCrunch Disrupt London on December 5-6.

First Place: A table in Startup Alley at TechCrunch Disrupt London

Second Place: Two tickets to attend TechCrunch Disrupt London

Third Place: One ticket to attend TechCrunch Disrupt London
