Hey Patrolers! Have you heard? Price Patrol placed SECOND in the TechCrunch Meetup + Pitch Off in San Diego!
What is a pitch off? It’s a competition where startup companies have the chance to give a 60 second pitch to a panel of TechCrunch writers and venture capitalists explaining who they are, the problem they are solving, and why they are so amazing! The best pitch wins!
So why is this so cool? Price Patrol beat out hundreds of startup applicants for one of the 20 select spots at the pitch off! Not only does this give us positive validation for our app, but as second place prize we received two tickets to the highly anticipated TechCrunch Disrupt event in San Francisco!
The Superbowl of startup events, Disrupt SF, is a five day experience (September 7-11) filled with guest speakers, sponsorships, venture capitalists, Hackathon, and even more startup presentations! Price Patrol was chosen to showcase at Startup Alley– a two day event jam-packed with early stage companies showing off their talent and technology to the thousands of attendees. Each day an ‘Audience Choice Winner’ will be chosen to present onstage in Startup Battlefield for the chance to win the $50,000 grand prize and the ever-so-holy Disrupt Cup! We already have the perfect place to display the cup, so wish us luck and stay tuned for updates on how it went!
