TechCrunch meetups are the things of legend, and it’s time that New Orleans got a taste of the fun.

We’re bringing one of our newest events, the TC Meetup + Pitch-Off to one of the country’s oldest cities, and we couldn’t be more excited. There will be beer, good conversation, and a battle to the death to see which entrepreneurs can dazzle and excite in under sixty seconds. And did we mention there will be beer?

Whether you’re an investor, entrepreneur, dreamer or tech enthusiast, we want to see you at the event, so we can give you free beer and hear your thoughts. Come one, come all. It’s sure to be a night to remember.

Pitch-Off Details

Participants interested in competing in the pitch-off will have 60 seconds to explain why their startup is awesome. These products must currently be in stealth or private beta.

Office hours details

Office Hours are for companies selected for the Pitch-off, these 15 minute 1 on 1 talks will be held on the day of the event. We’ll hear about your company, give feedback, and talk about the best pitch strategy for the 60-second rapid-fire competition. Think of us as Adam Levine on The Voice. More information on Office Hours will follow in a post on TechCrunch.

Pitch-off winners

We will have 3-5 judges, including TechCrunch writers and local VC’s, who will decide on the winners of the Pitch-off. First place will receive a table in Start Up Alley at the upcoming TechCrunch Disrupt. Second Place will receive 2 tickets to the upcoming TechCrunch Disrupt. Third Place will receive 1 ticket to the upcoming TechCrunch Disrupt.
