We know how much you love a good startup pitch-off. Who doesn’t? It combines the thrill of live, high-stakes entertainment with learning well-nigh the hottest new thing. Plus, you get to hear feedback from some of the smartest folks in the industry, thus learning how to veritably crush it at your next pitch meeting with a VC.
With all that in mind, we’re introducing a special summer edition of Extra Crunch Live that’s all pitch-off, all the time.
On August 4, Extra Crunch Live will full-length startups exhibiting in the Startup Alley at TechCrunch Disrupt 2021 in September. Those startups will pitch their products/businesses to a pair of expert VC judges, who will then requite their live feedback.
Extra Crunch Live is usually a combination of an interview with a founder/investor duo and an regulars pitch-off. But as it’s summer, and Disrupt is right virtually the corner, we thought it would be fun to bring you plane increasingly pitches and plane increasingly feedback.
