    2014 Competition

    Earn your chance to pitch on stage in front of more than 1,000 people and launch your startup. Will you be voted “Best Startup” of the conference in 2014?

    The Pitch Competition is now open. The only way to apply is through AngelList, by using this link. Early applications receive extra consideration (due to time constraints), so don’t apply at the last minute. The drop-dead deadline is April 20.

    UPDATE: all startups that applied for the pitch competition have been notified.

    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.
