European startups, start your engines for Plugg

Registration for the Plugg Start-Ups Rally 2010 are now open. You can register here.

Since 2008 Plugg in Brussels has become a must-attend fixture on the European startups scene. It was one of the first startups events I attended after just joining TechCrunch and it was a brilliant event, made more fun by the great welcome put on by founder Robin Wauters, who later happily became a TechCrunch writer as well.

Every year Plugg gives European startups an opportunity to pitch a large audience composed of entrepreneurs and investors, and an esteemed jury.

As of today, European startups can submit their company and team member profiles, after which the jury will decide which 20 of them are deemed worthy enough to compete based on a set criteria.

This year, they’ve partnered with dotopen, for the registration system which should make it easier to register a startup entry.

The deadline for registration is 12 February 2010 (Friday next week) so register ASAP. (click the appropriate link in the box on the right top of the screen to sign up for the Plugg Start-Ups Rally)

The 20 best startups will be selected to pitch. Good luck. If you have questions contact Plugg here.
