By StrangeWork.com: The TechCrunch40 conference kicks off today in San Francisco.
TechCrunch40 is a conference put together by internet drama king Jason Calacanis. They have selected 40 of the hottest startups to demo their products to a panel of experts over a 2 day period.
TechCrunch40 also has a DemoPit allowing an additional 100 startups to show of their goods to potential investors. One choosen startup will receive a cool $50,000 as well as additional goodies from their corporate sponsors.
Once again Calacanis has gone against the norm by making this conference completely free for all startups involved. I can only hope that next year I can make it to this event. Imagine, someone not trying to profit from startups. Amazing!
