There Is Only One Week Left To Apply For The Washington, DC Pitch-Off

Washington, D.C.: TechCrunch is headed your way and will be hosting a massive meetup and pitch-off on March 18th. We’re looking for some of the area’s best, undiscovered startups to participate in a rapid-fire, 60-second pitch-off competition. Washington, DC-area startups have until March 11th to apply.

The meetup’s general admission tickets are only $5 and grant the holder a couple of beers and entrance into what will surely be a fantastic night.

These events are part social gathering and part Pitch-Off competition where local startups or makers have 60 seconds to pitch their company or product to local VCs and TechCrunch editors. These products must currently be in stealth or private beta and be located in the DC region.

Office hours are for companies selected for the Pitch-Off. These 15-minute, one-on-one 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 rapid-fire competition. Think of us as Adam Levine on The Voice.

We will have 3-5 judges, including TechCrunch writers and local VCs, who will decide on the winners of the Pitch-Off. First place will receive a table in Startup Alley at the upcoming TechCrunch Disrupt NY; second place will receive two tickets to TechCrunch Disrupt NY; and third place will receive one ticket to TechCrunch Disrupt NY.

There are plenty of sponsorship opportunities for local and national startups. Email our sponsorship team at for more details.

See you there!
