Summary: Startup Battlefield 200 Benefits at TC Disrupt 2023
Again and a little louder for the early-stage founders in the back who may have missed our earlier memos on the perks and benefits Startup Battlefield 200 (SB 200) companies receive:
Full access to Disrupt: SB 200 founders attend Disrupt for free and receive an additional four passes and VIP access to all presentations, breakouts and roundtables.
Free exhibition space for the entire show: The SB 200 will be the only early stage startup allowed to exhibit at Disrupt.
Investor interest and media exposure: Investors hunting for future unicorns and journalists looking for the next big story will take to the show floor to meet and greet the founders of SB 200.
Workshops and pitch training: The founders of SB 200 are invited to exclusive workshops and masterclasses in the weeks leading up to Disrupt. They receive special pitch training from TechCrunch employees and one year of free TechCrunch+ membership.
Flash Pitch for Investors and TC Editors: That training will come in handy as you enter the Showcase Stage. You will receive invaluable feedback and you may find your way into an investor’s portfolio.
A chance at $100,000: TechCrunch editors will select 20 startups from the SB 200 as Startup Battlefield Finalists. Founders of those 20 companies receive private pitch coaching, feature in an article on TechCrunch, and pitch live on stage in front of the entire Disrupt audience. The eventual winner will take home the prize of $100,000 with no equity.
TechCrunch Disrupt takes place September 19-21 in San Francisco. Your opportunity to pitch on the global Disrupt stage and boost your startup growth is about to grind to a halt. Apply to the Startup Battlefield 200 — Through when? — Through 11:59 PM PDT tomorrow. Do it!
