As some of you may already know we’ve decided to postpone The Europas Awards for tech companies in Europe until after the Summer. Watch out for it in September, and how you can vote, soon. Meanwhile, we still wanted to have a meetup before the Summer break really kicks in, so we’re holding an event we’re calling “TechCrunch Summer Pitch Battle”.

Here’s how it will work:

1. Grab a ticket.
2. Work on a one minute “no slides” pitch for your idea/startup/company, and a 3 minute version with slides – but keep it very simple. PDFs are best.
3. Come along to the event and pitch your idea for one minute, no slides.
4. A group of judges selected from the startup and investor community will then select the ones they want to hear more from.
5. We’ll then load up the selected 3 minute pitches onto a laptop and projector and the finalists will face off with each other for the glorious title of “Summer Pitch Battle Emperor”.
5. Afterwards we’ll do some “speed networking” over drinks.

That’s pretty much it. No need to submit a pitch beforehand. Just turn up ready to pitch.

The event will be sponsored by UKTI, Eden Ventures, Bootlaw and TechHub, the new co-working space for startups which is shortly to launch next to Old Street tube station (Ground Floor, 76-80 City Rd).
