Get In On The First Batch of TechCrunch Summer Party Tickets At August Capital

Update: Tickets are sold out (it took only 30 minutes!). Tune in next week for our next batch.

The first batch of 100 tickets to our TechCrunch summer outing at August Capital are on sale now through ticketing partner Eventbrite. They’ll go fast, so get them now.

The party is July 30 from 5:30 – 10 pm on the beautiful back deck of August Capital.

Additional tickets will be released weekly, so stay tuned. Contact Heather or Jeanne for creative sponsorships and demo tables.

Of course, we’d rather spend the whole day with you, so consider attending the Social Currency CrunchUp being hosted nearby on Stanford’s Campus. We will explore the intersection of social commerce, geo-marketing, virtual currencies, and game mechanics. Tickets to the CrunchUp include attendance to the summer outing too, with expedited door entry.

As early adopters of technology, we all know that at our opinions and product picks are not necessarily indicative of what might appeal to the average consumer. So what happens when we hit an inflection point and the masses matter?

Do we really know what local merchants and smaller enterprises need to support their businesses? What do we need to know about consumer psychology so our digitally delivered discounts resonate with consumers? What retail rules of the road do we need to honor to close a sale? How do we blend the best of virtual and real currencies to entertain and engage consumers?

That’s what we’re going to explore at the Social Currency CrunchUp. We’re going to mix up real-world consumers and traditional retailers and marketers alongside the hottest new startups to debate the future.
