We know how much you love a good startup launch. Who doesn’t? It combines the thrill of high-stakes live entertainment with learning about the hottest novelties. Plus, you can hear commentary from some of the smartest people in the business, learning how to absolutely crush him at your next VC presentation meeting.
With all of this in mind, we’re launching a special summer edition of Extra Crunch Live it’s all the pitch-off, all the time.
On August 4, Extra Crunch Live will feature startups exhibiting in Startup Alley at TechCrunch Disruption 2021 in September. These startups will present their products / companies to a pair of expert VC judges, who will then give their feedback live.
Extra Crunch Live is usually a combination of an interview with a founder / investor duo and an audience pitch-off. But since it’s summer and Disrupt is just around the corner, we thought it would be fun to bring you some more pitches and even more feedback.
On August 4th, our VC expert judges will be Edith Yeung from Race Capital and Laela Sturdy from CapitalG. Register here for free!
