It’s happening! TechCrunch is coming to Israel for the TechCrunch Meetup + Pitch-Off in Tel Aviv on the evening of Wednesday June 28. It’s going to be an awesome event.
TechCrunch doesn’t come to Tel Aviv often enough, so we wanted to do something special for our meetup here. In addition to the usual networking party and pitch-off competition, we’ve lined up a few great speakers to tell us more about what’s happening in Israel when it comes to tech startups. And we’re looking forward to having a drink with all of you.
You can still buy tickets here, but hurry: THEY ARE SELLING OUT.
