    If you do not have an AngelList profile yet, now is a great time to create one. You do not have to be currently looking for money to have an AngelList profile, any startup at any stage can create a profile.

    The competition will be fierce. Of the 100+ applications, the best 8 will get to give their elevator pitch on stage in the morning. The top 3 pitches will qualify for the afternoon VC panel, which will determine this year’s winner.

    Startup Demo Pit

    If your product is ready to launch, book a Startup Demo Pit table at the Startup Village. This is a great way to meet a lot of people in a short amount of time, including some of the key influencers of Silicon Valley, whether it’s press, investors or power users.
