Each week on Tuesday, John Biggs and I are lucky enough to get the opportunity to take over an hour of radio time on Sirius XM. We discuss the latest in tech news, chat with important people in the industry, and then get into the best part of all: The TechCrunch Radio Pitch-Off.
Here’s how it works:
After going through a quick application process, five companies are selected to participate in the competition each week. They have exactly sixty seconds to explain their product and convince the judges — John Biggs, me, and a guest VC — that they deserve to win. It’s an awesome way for us to learn about the latest and greatest technology, and it’s a great opportunity for early-stage startups to get a little publicity around their product.
Sound like something you might be into?
You can check out the full details below:
1. You must have a product that is available to general users. No sign-up pages or pre-orders with a TBD ship date. There must be a link we can give to listeners/readers where they can access your product, service, what have you.
2. You must be an early stage company. If you have raised a Series A or later, you are disqualified. Bootstrapped or seed stage startups are welcome.
3. You must be able to pitch your product with your words only.
4. You must be able to operate a telephone.
It’s going to be a hoot!
Each week, TechCrunch Radio will air Tuesdays at 6:00 pm ET with a replay at 6:00 pm PT, drive time for both coasts, on Insight, channel 121, and through the SiriusXM Internet Radio App on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online at siriusxm.com.
