It’s happening. The TechCrunch team landed in Tel Aviv and we’re in the starting blocks for the TechCrunch Meetup + Pitch-Off in Tel Aviv on Wednesday June 22. And it’s going to be an awesome event.
As TechCrunch doesn’t come to Tel Aviv often enough, we wanted to do something special for our meetup here. In addition to the usual networking part and pitch-off competition, we 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.
