Our June event takes place again at Capital Factory.
If you are new to this group and have a project in mind, or have already started a startup and need a co-founder, engineers, etc, - looking for your first angel, - or interested to join a startup, come join us for a great night of startup pitches, networking, good beer, wine and food.
Please make sure that you apply with your pitch deck early, as we are expecting to make some difficult choices between all the great pitch proposals.
June 09, 2014 Meetup Venue: Capital Factory
How to get there:
On top of the OMNI hotel on 8th and Brazos on the 16th floor in Austin downtown. Capital Factory is providing tickets for parking after 6:00pm to park under the OMNI Hotel for $5.00. You have to save your parking ticket and then show the one that Capital Factory will provide to get your discounted parking.
1. You are an entrepreneur with a developed concept or a running startup pre VC round, looking for co-founders, talent, or investors.
2. You are a techie looking for your Startup (reverse pitch).
3. For February we want to try something new: a 60sec pitch for an idea to form a group developing an MVP testing that concept. You can pick people from the audience to be part of your group.
Because it is fun! and also pitching in our Meetup lets you "practice" your pitch and get feedback from other startups and investors, always a good thing!
