    Hi Conrad. I'm with the Blue Startups cohort. Nicole Randall just told me about your awesome event. Can I get on the wait list?

      Are these tickets for pitching or just for attending?

      June 22, 2014

      Fortunately, There is a huge demand for pitching slots, so there is a short application in the registration. Because we are a GDG, Ideas need to use a major Google developer product, like android or app engine. Hope this helps!
