Got an awesome tech product?

Well, if you’re based in the Austin, Texas region, join VentureBeat and DEMO for a meetup at one of Austin’s most respected venture capital firms, Austin Ventures.

On Nov. 19., we’ll be inviting up to 10 companies that are contemplating launching products at DEMO (either at the upcoming Spring event in February in Palm Desert, or at DEMO Fall 2011 back in Silicon Valley) to present their ideas and get feedback on their products.

Location is Austin Ventures’ offices at 300 West 6th Street.

You’ll have the opportunity to meet with senior partners at Austin Ventures and also to meet me and other members of the DEMO team. Each presentation will get at least 20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes of feedback.

We’ve had similar events around the country, partnering with what we think are the best firms in each location. They include the Foundry Group, BenchmarkKleiner Perkins, Madrona and others.

If you’re a company interested in coming, please fill out this form. If you’re selected as one of the 10, we’ll follow up immediately with more information about the presentation and who will be there, etc.

The night before, we’ll all head out for cocktails at Six Lounge, which will be open to the entire Austin tech scene, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Spread the word — let’s bring the house down! We’ll be buying drinks there for the first 50 people who show up. Please register here for that.

Look forward to seeing you in Austin!
