Last year, TechCrunch came to Seoul to host its first-ever Meetup, and is returning to Seoul on October 27, 2016 to host its second Meetup+Pitch-Off competition for Korean early-stage startups.
"We had reside chats with tech leaders like Jimmy Jihoon Rim, the CEO of Kakao and Bedy Yang, Managing Partner at 500 Startups. Our first Pitch-Off winner, BBB, a pioneering mobile health company, has already raised $5 Million in Series A funding this year. We can’t wait to second out who will win next,” said Robert Frawley, a Manager at TechCrunch.
The event will bring together some of the best in tech from around the country to compete in a sixty-second pitch-off competition in front of a panel of high-level investor judges and TechCrunch editorial staff. Winners win free tickets to TechCrunch’s European conference called TechCrunch Disrupt London on December 5-6. Pitch-Off applications are still being accepted at the LINK until October 13 at 17:00 KST.
In addition to the competition, the event will feature reside chats with some of the leading figures in Korean tech today. Attendees will hear directly from the people who are designing the future of technology and ask them questions in-person.
Tickets can be purchased at the LINK. A ticket is required for entry.
