IndyPy Mixer: Startup Row Pitch Night 2020

After San Francisco, London, Seattle and Montreal, Indianapolis has been selected to be the next venue for the internationally renowned Startup Row pitch competition!

On January 14th, 2020, IndyPy will host a special Python User Group meetup and partner with Startup Row to select a Python-powered startup from the Midwest. The winner will exhibit at PyCon 2020, next to sponsors such as Microsoft, Anaconda, and SurveyMonkey.

 Since 2011, Startup Row has been a part of the vibrant PyCon experience, and has given engineer-founders and their teams the opportunity to showcase their products, receive high quality feedback and connect with leaders in the Python engineering community.

Organizations selected for Startup Row will have the opportunity to exhibit at PyCon 2020. This exposure had led to millions of dollars in funding for participating companies. Groups like Docker got their kick-start from exhibiting on Startup Row.

Startup Row PyCon 2020 Applications are NOW OPEN, and January's IndyPy Mixer will give your company a fantastic opportunity to win a booth on Startup Row in PA!

Does your startup qualify? Here are the criteria:
- You use Python somewhere in your tech or business stack (open source, proprietary, data science, machine learning, orchestration, marketing automation… it all counts)
- Your startup is 2.5 years old, or less, at time of applying (if you had a major pivot or delayed product launch, measure from there)
- You have 15 or fewer full-time employees, including founders, at the time of applying
- You or your company will fund travel and accommodation to PyCon US in Pittsburgh, PA
- You have not previously presented on Startup Row at PyCon (if you applied before but didn’t make it, you’re encouraged to apply again!)

Sound like your company would fit? Submit your application today and we'll see your pitch on January 14th:

The winner will be decided by audience voting, so bring your friends, family, and other supporters to cheer for your company!
