Founders — pitch onstage with TechCrunch. Next month we’re back with the star-studded TC Sessions: Space — an event dedicated to exploring all things innovation, investment and industry in the final frontier. We’re on the hunt for early-stage founders creating innovative companies in space or space-related industries.
The TC Sessions: Space stage will host fireside chats and panels from luminaries in the industry. Hear from experts from NASA, Space Force, Aerospace Corp., Blue Origin and more on December 6, in person in Los Angeles California.
Pitch your space tech startup
Space tech spans numerous verticals — satellite-data-based applications, rockets, fueling, data analytics, geospatial information systems, hardware, satellites, national security, commercial launch, climate, tracking software and more. Startups applying to pitch should have some connection to space — intergalactic or from the ground.
Founders will have four minutes to pitch followed by a five-minute Q&A with our in-person panel of judges. Selected companies will be announced on TechCrunch. The pitches themselves will be streamed to TC Sessions: Space attendees and on TechCrunch.com. Apply here.
