We’ve all heard the adage, less is more. But when it comes to learning all the complex ins and outs of building and launching a successful startup, more is definitely the way to go. Enter not one, but two bootcamp experiences for the early-stage crowd: TC Early Stage: Operations & Fundraising on April 1-2 and TC Early Stage: Marketing & Fundraising on July 8-9.
Here’s another relevant adage: A penny saved is a penny earned. Kill two adages with one click, buy a dual-event pass at the early-bird price and you’ll save $100 or more. More knowledge for less money — what’s not to love?
Big, fat caveat: Procrastinate at your own peril. Prices on dual-event passes go up this Friday, March 26 at precisely 11:59 pm (PST).
Both TC Early Stage events focus on the essential skills every founder needs to succeed, and you’ll learn from leading industry experts. Each bootcamp features a discrete set of speakers, range of topics and presentations, but they’re all dedicated to helping founders in the early stages of the startup journey build a solid foundation.
We have a tremendously talented group of people ready to share their expertise and experience with you. Check out the TC Early Stage agenda for April.
Here’s another cool commonality: Day two of each bootcamp features a TC Early Stage Pitch-Off. You’ll tune in live to watch 10 global early-stage companies pitch to a panel of top VCs. The ultimate winner will be featured on TechCrunch.com, receive an annual Extra Crunch subscription and attend TC Disrupt this September — gratis.
Contenders for the April pitch-off are ready to go, but we’ll be opening the application process for July soon, so keep checking back for your chance to bring the heat.
We’re busy building out the agenda for July’s TC Early Stage: Marketing & Fundraising, but we’re thrilled to share that Lisa Wu, a partner at Norwest — with investments like Calm, Plaid, Opendoor and Grove Collaborative — will join us to discuss how to ace a one-hour pitch. Spoiler alert: think like a VC.
Get more and spend less is the best possible adage (okay, we made that up). But hey, saving $100 or more on a dual-event pass to TC Early Stage in April and July is just a smart way to go. Buy your pass before the deadline hits this Friday, March 26 at 11:59 pm (PST).
