Ten entrepreneurs are currently perfecting their pitches in the hopes of wowing a panel of VC judges at next week’s TechCrunch Atlanta Meetup. Each startup will have 60 seconds to deliver their presentation, with a brief Q&A after their pitch.
After the final presentation, judges will narrow down the winners and three lucky startups will get their hands on TechCrunch Disrupt tickets (held in New York this May), with the first place winner snagging a spot in Startup Alley. [Update: The judges are KP Reddy of Change the World Partners, Edwin Marcial, CTO at ICE, and Marc Gorlin, CEO of Roadie.]
Applications are closed, but grab yourself a spot in the audience (as long as you’re 21+) and watch the ultimate showdown. Here’s a sneak peak of the Atlanta startups battling it out for the ultimate prize.
