TechCrunch, you may recall, is coming to D.C.

The tech news site is hosting a “meetup + pitch-off” event on Feb. 21 at Echostage in Ivy City. It’ll be, as TechCrunch Events Director Emma Comeau told Technical.ly, an opportunity for the company to get a sense for the “tremendous growth” that’s occurred in the D.C. startup scene over the past few years.

In service of this, TechCrunch invited #dctech startups to apply to pitch a panel of VCs and TechCrunch editors. On Monday they announced who will get to take the stage.

Here’s the lineup:

The challenge now, for all these companies, is to figure out how best to sell themselves and their product in just 60 seconds.
