You are encouraged to bring your laptop with your presentation ready to go. If you don't have a laptop available, you may email your presentation ahead of time.
Here are the specifics for Startup Riot 2011 and the link.
The most important part of your application is providing a 4 slide presentation and a 3 minute presentation that goes with those slides. This would essentially be an initial run of what you would present at Startup Riot.
Rules for the slides:
* First slide is company name and presenters name and other contact info - can't use this slide for "real" information
* Next three slides are all up to you but we suggest VERY few words and LARGE type (48+ point preferably)
* More visual slides will mean more focus on your talk/idea and not your slides.
* No animation, music, sound, or fanciness for your slides. If you are selected your slides will be converted to plain PDF so keep that in mind.
We've got a travel assistance fund and we'll be announcing prizes for the top 3 audience vote recipients soon.
