Missed out on Crunchies tickets? Here’s your second chance

Want to master the CMO role? Join us for GrowthBeat Summit on June 1-2 in Boston, where we'll discuss how to merge creativity with technology to drive growth. Space is limited and we're limiting attendance to CMOs and top marketing execs. Request your personal invitation here!

crunchiesWe’re releasing the second wave of tickets right now for the fourth annual Crunchies, the startup awards co-hosted by TechCrunch, GigaOm, and VentureBeat.

The first set of tickets sold out in 90 minutes, so if you want one, you should move fast. Again, the ceremony will be held on the evening of January 21 at the Palace of Fine Arts Theater in San Francisco. Tickets cost $75 and include both the ceremony (which is always packed with big names from the tech world) and the afterparty at the Exploratorium next door.

Buy your tickets here.

If you’re too slow today, there will be two more chances to buy tickets in January. (That’s what I said last time, but today’s release is apparently a last-minute decision in response to all the ticket requests).

Meanwhile, you really, truly, are running out of time to nominate your favorite startups and entrepreneurs for the Crunchies. You can nominate once per category per day, but the nominations close at 11:59pm Pacific time on December 24. Submit your nominations here.

VentureBeat’s VB Insight team is studying email marketing tools. Chime in here, and we’ll share the results.
