Startup Row Pitch Event Indy

IndyPy Presents: Startup Row Pitch Competition
After San Francisco, London, Seattle and Montreal, Indianapolis has been selected to be the next venue for the internationally renowned Startup Row pitch competition!
Six Feet Up will join IndyPy on January 9th, 2018, as they 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 2018, next to sponsors such as Microsoft, Anaconda, and SurveyMonkey.
Don’t miss it!
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 2018. 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.
