TechCrunch is coming to Detroit — virtually, at least. On April 15, TechCrunch is hosting a small online event with local venture capitalists, founders and those curious about the growing ecosystem. There will also be a small pitch-off event where Detroit-based startups have three minutes to pitch their companies to Detroit-based VCs.
TechCrunch just published a feature on Detroit-darling StockX and this meetup will feature those involved in producing that content. The EC-1 can be found here.
Everyone is welcome to attend the event, but we’re looking for startups based in Michigan’s southeast region to pitch at this event. TechCrunch has a long history of hosting small pitch-offs and we’re excited to revive this tradition despite the need to do it virtually.
Not in Michigan? No worries. We’re spinning up similar events in other regions too. Spoiler: Pittsburgh is next.
- Early-stage startups (Series A or earlier)
- Startups based in the Detroit region will be given priority
- Pitch decks are highly recommended
- Apply for the pitch-off here
The event is online and free, but space is limited. Register early. We hope you can make it.
