PyCon has a Startup Row that showcases the most promising Python startups. PyCon 2014 is in Montreal and we'd like to support it by sending some Vancouver based startups. Vancouver based startups *who use Python anywhere in their stack* are invited to pitch their company and compete to win free tickets to Pycon in Montreal at the end of March and a booth at Startup Row.

You get five minutes to tell us why your company is awesome. A panel of judges will rate the pitches on business and technical merit.

Anyone is welcome to attend. The regular Python meetup ( will continue at 7:15 with a roundtable discussion after the pitches end. Food and drinks are provided. It's also a chance to check out Facebook's office.
