Life360 Sponsors “Pitch a VC” Contest

Headed to Austin next week? Have an awesome startup or an idea you’d like to pitch to a VC? Well here’s your chance. We’re offering 10 lucky entrepreneurs the opportunity of a lifetime in Austin: 15 minutes, one-on-one, with a well-known VC in the back of a sporty new BMW i3 (these cars haven’t even hit the US market yet!) where you can check out the connected car of the future as you sell your idea.

Forget pitching your story in a crowded room with hundreds of other startups or a loud bar where you can’t be heard. We’re giving you the chance to personally connect with dealmakers like:

  • Dave McClure, 500 Startups

  • Christine Herron, Director at Intel Capital

  • Ethan Kurzweil, Partner at Bessemer Ventures

  • Christian Noske, BMWi Ventures

  • Mark Platshon, BMWi Ventures

  • Ryan Swagar, Venture51

Life360 and BMW are bringing a fleet of the cars to Austin, March 7 – 11, to showcase a preview of the Life360 app integrated in-dash. A private chauffeur will do the driving so you can focus on what really matters… your pitch! Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 12.14.29 PM

Got an idea to sell?

To enter, follow @Life360 on Twitter and then Tweet @Life360 and @BMWiUSA with the hashtag #PitchaVC. Get creative – short vids, a link to your blog, a photo – whatever best helps you tell us what makes your startup shine (we know you’ve only got 140 characters).

Rules and Regs

Pitches must be in by 11:59 PM PT on Wednesday, March 5. We’ll select up to 10 winners on Wednesday, March 6 and notify you via a Twitter DM. All “Pitch a VC” meetings in Austin will take place between March 8th and 9th. Just so you know, no purchase or payment of any kind is necessary to enter or win the sweepstakes but you can read all the legal mumbo jumbo our attorneys make us post. Good luck and see you in Austin!
