Startup Battlefield applications for Disrupt SF close in 24 hours


The central countdown has begun, and we’re T-minus 24 hours until applications close for Startup Battlefield, Disrupt SF 2017. If you don’t contention your focus by Monday, Jul 17 at 12 pm PT, good then, Houston, we have a problem.

Don’t skip your shot to launch your early-stage startup in San Francisco — the heart of Silicon Valley. Between 15-30 startups will be selected to strive for the top prize: a $50,000 check and the Disrupt Cup.

They will join the ranks of 648 prior Startup Battlefield contenders who have, to date, lifted $6.9 billion in appropriation — and 95 of those companies have been acquired or left public. Want to know more? You’ll find the finish sum of past Battlefields and their participants on the TechCrunch Battlefield Leaderboard.

Participants get 6 mins to representation and benefaction a live product proof in front of an assembly of roughly 3,000 people — and the eventuality is streamed live world-wide on, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Battlefield participants also accept consultant representation coaching and business recommendation — not to discuss lots of media and financier attention.

Startup Battlefield contenders then margin questions from a row of judges consisting of TechCrunch editors and VCs. Past judges have enclosed the likes of Roelof Botha (Sequoia Capital), Karin Klein (Bloomberg Beta), Susan Lyne (BBG Ventures) and Fred Wilson (Union Square Ventures).

Still not assured to make that final push? Consider this: You don’t have to win Startup Battlefield to win big. Former TechCrunch CEO, Heather Harde, estimates that “more than half of companies that attend in Battlefields typically accept poignant rounds of appropriation with 6 months.”

Startup Battlefield, Disrupt SF 2017 takes place Sep 18-20 2017 at Pier 48 in San Francisco.

This is it: The final 24-hour push. Submit your focus here before the time runs out.
