Let’s Go, New Orleans: We Want You At Our Meetup Next Week

Hey, NOLA. What’s up? Listen, we have a problem. While we know that Atlanta is a startup hub and we’re already oversold in Georgia and Charleston, we’re having trouble filling seats in your home town. While we’re happy to come down for some hurricanes and dark and stormys, how about we have a few dozen more people show up? Please, buy your tickets today so we can get an accurate headcount for next week.

These events are part social gathering and part pitch-off competition where 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.

Remember, we’ll also have a pitch-off and we’ve already picked 15 great startups. 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.

General admission tickets are available for $5 and grant the holder a couple of beers and entrance into what will surely be a fantastic night. Buy them below.

As always, if you want to sponsor contact our team at sponsors@beta.techcrunch.com.
