Startup Battlefield is TechCrunch’s premiere startup launch competition. Applications are currently open for our Battlefield at TechCrunchDisrupt London, December 7-8th. The startups TechCrunch editors select to compete will pitch on-stage in front of some of the biggest names in tech. Last year, our judges included Klaus Hommels of Lakestar Capital, Sonali De Rycker of Accel Partners and Daniel Waterhouse of Balderton Capital.
Companies receive coaching on their pitch from the TechCrunch staff, an exhibit area in the Disrupt Startup-Alley, invites to our VIP events and, of course, TC swag. It’s all 100% free, and the benefit to contestants in terms of press, partner and investor attention is huge. To date, Battlefield contestants have raised 5.2B and 67 have exited.
The deadline to apply is September 30th. Email [email protected] with any questions.
