TechCrunch Disrupt is the world’s leading authority in debuting revolutionary startups, introducing game-changing technologies and discussing what’s top of mind for the tech industry’s key innovators. Disrupt is where you’ll find the renowned Startup Battlefield competition, a virtual Hackathon, hundreds of startups in Startup Alley, Workshops and legendary networking at our After Parties… and we’re in San Francisco, right where startup dreams began.
Startup Battlefield brings the world’s top early-stage startups together on the Disrupt Main Stage to compete for the coveted Disrupt Cup, a $100,000 prize, and the attention of media and investors. Since appearing on the TechCrunch Disrupt stage, Startup Battlefield alumni have collectively raised over $8 billion and seen over 100 exits. The judges include TechCrunch editors as well as top VCs and entrepreneurs. Past winners include names like Dropbox, Mint, Yammer, Zenefits, and many more. Participation is free and open to all pre-Series A startups. Applications are now open for Disrupt SF 2018 at apply.techcrunch.com until June 6.
