If you’re based in the Austin region and are looking to launch a new tech product in the near future, join us for a meetup at one of Austin’s most respected venture capital firms, Austin Ventures.

We’ll be inviting up to 10 companies that are contemplating launching products at DEMO (either at the upcoming DEMO event in September 12-14 in Silicon Valley, or DEMO Spring 2012) to pitch on Tuesday, June 7 at Austin Ventures’ offices at 300 West 6th Street.

This is part of our ongoing quest to find the best entrepreneurs in the world for DEMO, the event VentureBeat co-produces every six months. The next conference is scheduled for September 12-14 in Silicon Valley. It’s an event where a long list of successful companies have launched their earliest products, including Netscape, VMWare, Salesforce, Palm, TiVo and E-Trade.

DEMO has been the launching ground for a number of successful Austin companies as well. The list includes Whole Security (acquired by Symantec), Bones in Motion (acquired by Adidas), Sailpoint, InfoChimps, Zosh and many more.

We also just launched a new DEMO Scholarship Partner Program, which will make DEMO free for the earliest stage companies. This next event is going to be huge.

If your company is 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.

These meetings are not designed to be pitches for funding. They are a great opportunity to develop an early relationship with the firm’s partners without the pressure that comes with a typical pitch.

Look forward to seeing you in Austin!
