SAN DIEGO, Aug. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TakeLessons.com, the largest online marketplace for music lessons in the U.S., announced this week it is a major sponsor of the upcoming TechCrunch Meetup + Pitch-Off in San Diego on August 22, 2013. The event will be held at Block No. 16 Union & Spirits (344 7th Ave.), a multi-level entertainment space located in downtown San Diego's East Village in the famed Culy Warehouse.
A "must attend" event for anyone invested in the future of technology, TechCrunch Meetups bring together the hottest investors, entrepreneurs, emerging tech companies, customers and media to meet, share ideas and preview the latest products and services driving digital innovation. TechCrunch, a leading technology media property, is dedicated to profiling startups, reviewing new Internet products and breaking tech news. The company hosts major conferences, events and MeetUps worldwide --- most recently in London ---- that serve as community platforms for industry conversation and collaboration.
"TechCrunch Meetups provide a unique opportunity to gather and share ideas with the 'Who's Who' of technology, all in one room," said Steven Cox, Founder and CEO, TakeLessons. "We are thrilled to extend our resources and local expertise to help TechCrunch bring their influential MeetUp event to San Diego. We look forward to showing them why San Diego is not just an appealing tourist destination --- it's also an important West Coast tech hub with an exploding start-up ecosystem."
