TechCrunch’s Pitch-off Returns to Boston Feb. 23

Mark your calendars - the TechCrunch Meetup + Pitch-off is coming to Boston.

Annually TechCrunch hits the road, stopping in a handful of states making major noise in the tech and startup sphere. For the past several years, Boston’s played host to the event and, according to TechCrunch, they’ve “never been let down by the tech sprouting up in [Boston].”

Taking place this year on February 23 at 6 p.m. at Royale, the TechCrunch Meetup + Pitch-Off provides an opportunity for like-minded individuals in the tech and startup scene to connect. It goes way beyond your standard networking night, though. As part of the event, TechCrunch also holds a pitch-off, inviting area startups to pitch their product in 60 seconds to a panel of Boston-based VC judges and TechCrunch editors. At the end of the night, they’ll announce winners.

The top team will snag a booth in Startup Alley at TechCrunch’s Disrupt NY 2016, May 9 - 11. Second place scores two tickets to the show, and the Audience Choice winner will take home one ticket.
