The TechCrunch Startup Battlefield gives selected companies the opportunity to pitch their products on-stage in front of the eyes of the biggest stakeholders in the tech industry. This time round, the Startup Battlefield will take place at the Big Apple. Where the best up-and-coming startups will show off what they have in the offering on what is probably one of the most visible stages in the tech industry.
The startup that will show up and impress will walk home with a cash prize of $50,000 and the Disrupt Cup. This year’s judges will include Roelof Botha of Sequoia Capital and Fred Wilson of Union Square Ventures.
Startups will also benefit from coaching by the Startup Battlefield teams on how best to pitch an idea. In addition, to a whole other bunch of goodies, that will be taking place behind the scenes. Startups will also get a free booth at the Battlefield section dedicated to them at the Startup Alley; this will help them network with the high-profile attendees at the TechCrunch Disrupt NYC. They will also get to rub shoulders with the speakers and judges at the TechCrunch VIP events.
The Startup Battlefield will take place during the TechCrunch Disrupt NYC on May 9-11 at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal in Brooklyn. The competition gives strong preference to companies that will be launching their product to the public for the first time on the TechCrunch’s stage. The Battlefield is open to companies dealing with any vertical, hardware or software, consumer or enterprise, bootstrapped or seed- or Series A-funded startups.
