Details

We are very excited that Co-founders Wanted Austin has been invited again to become part of Austin Startup Week (http://atxstartupweek.com) this year as its major pitch event. Our October event therefore takes place at the first day of Austin Startup Week (http://atxstartupweek.com/comingsoon.html), again at Capital Factory, conveniently located where and around most events will take place that week.

If you are new to this group and have a project in mind or have already started a startup and need a co-founder, engineers, etc, - or looking for your first angel - come join us for a great night of startup pitches, networking, good beer, wine and food.

Please make sure that you apply with your pitch early this time, as we are expecting to make some difficult choices between all the great pitch proposals.

October 2013 Meetup Venue: Capital Factory

How to get there:

One of the first startups to pitch at our event was RideScout (http://www.ridescoutapp.com/), and today they are up an running and can help you get to our event, don't have to worry about parking, get their app (http://www.ridescoutapp.com/) and ride to our meetup!

Format:

10 speaking slots available (4 minutes each) for startups looking for co-founders or looking to hire developers/designers.

Why?

Because is fun! and also pitching in our Meetup let's you "practice" your pitch and get feedback from other startups and investors, always a good thing!

If you want to pitch your startup to attract a co-founder, investor, talent or customers, please send your pitch deck (PowerPoint format) which should not be longer than 4 slides to pitch at [masked] to be considered.

Deadline to submit presentation to be considered to pitch:

The deadline to send your pitch deck is Monday September 30th, 2013.

Remember that you'll only have about 4 minutes to present.

If you are a software developer or UX/UI designer or developer interested in joining a cool startup, you can attend for FREE. Just send an e-mail to [masked] with a link to your LinkedIn profile or other evidence of your technical skills.

If you are a consultant looking to sell some services to young startups, you are in the wrong place.
