TechCrunch Include Office Hours are happening in NYC on September 27! Albert Wenger and Andy Weissman of Union Square Ventures will join TechCrunch to provide valuable advice and feedback to startups.
Launched in 2014, Include is TechCrunch’s diversity program, aimed at facilitating opportunities for underrepresented groups in tech to take their startups to the next level.
The Office Hours program is part of that effort. Once monthly, TechCrunch works with VC partners to provide feedback and advice to early-stage companies. To be considered for a meeting in our August session with CrunchFund in San Francisco or General Catalyst in New York City, fill out the application here.
Underrepresented groups in tech include, but are not limited to, Black, Latino, Native American, LGBT and female founders. Preference will be given to teams that can meet in person. Startups should at least have a functional prototype.
Let’s learn more about our co-hosts.
