About the 6th Annual Summer Party at August Capital
July 29, 5:30 – 10:00 pm
2480 Sand Hill Road, Menlo Park CA 94025, Map
Get Tickets @ Eventbrite: $40 based on availability. Tickets to be released weekly in batches. Stay tuned to TechCrunch for releases as they sell out quickly. #tcaugustcapital

Join us for a great mix of start-up demos, networking, giveaways, drinks and fun on the best deck on all of Sand Hill Road.

Due to limited capacity and strong demand for tickets, we regret tickets are NOT TRANSFERABLE and NOT REFUNDABLE. If you use your name to purchase multiple tickets, your guests must arrive with you to check in at the door. Attendee identification will be checked at the door against the guest list; paper tickets not necessary.

Parking will be extremely limited so we encourage you to leave plenty of time to find parking, or carpool with friends and co-workers.

To help with parking, Zimride will be hosting a free rideshare service. You can check it out here.

The combined CrunchUp – Summer Party also gives us a great sponsorship platform for start-ups and brands to reach both conference and networking attendees.

* Align around top mobile themes
* Awareness and brand-building with top VCs, corporates and startups
* Demo tables for show-and-tell and swag
* Custom sponsorships: live-streaming, check-in games, etc.
* Summer party sponsor favorites: specialty cocktails, beer, photo wall, music, giveaways, games, desserts, etc.
* Tickets

Please contact Jeanne Logozzo or Heather Harde to learn more about sponsorship packages and custom opportunities.

Hope to see you there!

A huge thank you to our sponsors.
