It seems like a long time ago that Jason Calcannis and Mike Arrington announced their intention to host a conference for startups in the fall. It was at the DEMO conference at the start of the year. Well ….. TechCrunch20 is now real and today the web site went live with more details of the event.
“The format is simple: Twenty of the hottest new startups from around the world will announce and demo their products over a two day period at TechCrunch20. And they donâ€™t pay a cent to do this. They will be selected to participate based on merit alone.”
The venue is the prestigious Palace Hotel on New Montgomery Street in San Francisco.
Although free to companies the event is not free for attendees. 2-day ticket prices, based on availability, are $1,995 through July 15, 2007 and $2,495 through September 10, 2007. There will be a limit on the numbers attending so get yours now.
