TechCrunch hosted their Pitch-Off event at (Le) Poisson Rouge this week. Ten tech start-ups, pitched their companies to an impressive panel of tech experts and partygoers. Speakers had 60 seconds to present their talent and technology and then defend them during a lively Q & A with the judges. The first prize winner won the coveted opportunity to introduce their company at Startup Alley, the incubator forum at TechCrunch's annual Disrupt SF 2015 conference in San Francisco. 

(Le) Poisson Rouge is a perfect venue for multi-faceted events. The built in stage, Sound & Lighting packages and ample elbow room make it an ideal choice for your next get together.
