South America: Join the Startup Battlefield 200

Startup Battlefield 200 (SB 200) is the leading global startup competition featuring 200 of the most promising, impactful early stage startups.

Last year at Disrupt, the inaugural cohort consisted of two notable South American startup startups.

South American entrepreneurs — you cover many countries on a vast continent. Throw your hats in the ring and show us what you’re building. Here’s what’s in it for you.

It starts with receiving the TechCrunch Seal of Approval – it’s hard to come by and it carries a lot of weight in the startup world. You are in the spotlight of invaluable investor and media interest. See what else you get — for free.

Full access to Disrupt: This includes four extra passes and VIP access to all presentations, breakouts and roundtables.

Exclusive master classes: The founders of SB 200 will enjoy workshops in the weeks leading up to Disrupt. They also receive special pitch training from TechCrunch staff and a free year of TechCrunch+ membership.

Flash pitch at Disrupt: That special training will come in handy as you enter the Showcase Stage and pitch to investors and TechCrunch editors. Receive valuable feedback and – who knows? You may even pique an investor’s interest.

Exhibition space for all three days: The SB 200 is the only early-stage startup allowed to exhibit on the Disrupt show floor.

Save the best for last: All SB 200 founders have a chance to compete for $100,000 in the Startup Battlefield pitch competition. TechCrunch editors will select 20 startups from the SB 200 as Startup Battlefield finalists. Founders of those 20 companies will be featured on TechCrunch, receive personal pitch coaching, and then pitch live on stage to the entire Disrupt audience. The eventual winner will take home the $100,000 equity-free no strings attached prize pool and all the glory.

If you are an aspiring founder in South America, don’t miss this opportunity to launch your company on a global stage. Sign up for the Startup Battlefield 200 at Disrupt 2023 before May 31 at 11:59 PM PDT.
