Here’s how you can get a second hit on Startup Battlefield – TechCrunch
We strongly believe in second chances here at TechCrunch, and this is great news for start-up founders who haven’t applied to participate in the Starter battlefield during Disrupt 2020 (September 14-18). Your second chance comes in the form of two Wild Card entries to the world’s most legendary startup competition.
Want a chance to take on some of the best new startups from around the world? Go buy a Digital Startup Alley package and expose your extraordinary startup to thousands of Disrupt 2020 attendees. TechCrunch editors will nominate two outstanding startups from Alley of digital startups as Wild Card entries.
You will only have a few days to prepare before joining the other Starter battlefield contestants and deliver a six-minute pitch and demonstration to a panel of judges – renowned VCs and technologists. You will also answer a question and answer after your presentation. If you go to round two, you’ll start over in front of a new set of experts.
The price? Massive media and investor exposure (whether or not you win), glory in the form of the Disrupt Cup and $ 100,000 in cash with no equity.
Pro tip: Exhibit in Alley of digital startups and you are eligible for a Wild Card slot – even if you have applied to Starter battlefield but was not part of the final cohort. You came so close – don’t miss your second chance!
