First place at the Berlin Meetup + Pitch-off wins a table in Startup Alley at TechCrunch Disrupt London in December. Second place gets two tickets to the show, and the Audience Choice winner takes home one ticket to the conference.

Our partner for the Berlin event is TOA: aka the Tech Open Air conference. More details on which follow below.

This week TechCrunch was in Stockholm for another Meetup + Pitch-off. You can read about the teams that pitched in Stockholm here.

The winner at that event was Arthro Therapeutics, a health tech startup that’s aiming to treat the chronic condition osteoarthritis via activity treatment programs delivered online.

We’re expecting to see lots more exciting ideas in Berlin. So get your applications in and see you there!
