TechCrunch is coming to Austin and Seattle in June

It’s that time again.

TechCrunch is headed to Austin and Seattle for the 2016 TC Meetup + Pitch-off. If you were looking to pitch your startup to the TechCrunch team, local VCs and your local community, this is the moment you’ve been waiting for.

Ten companies will be selected to participate in the pitch-off. Each will have exactly 60 seconds to pitch their wares to a panel of expert judges, including TC editors and local venture capitalists. Judges will conduct a quick Q&A after each rapid fire pitch, and at the end of all the presentations, judges will determine their winners.

First place wins a table in Startup Alley at TechCrunch Disrupt SF. Second place gets two tickets to the show, and the Audience Choice winner takes home one ticket to the conference.

Apply to the pitch-offs here.

But even if you aren’t interested in pitching on stage, the Meetups are a great opportunity to network with the local community and with TechCrunch writers. Plus, there will be beer. That said, 21+ only please.
