Your chance to join the TC Disrupt Startup Battlefield 200 ends today – TechCrunch

Time is running out for one of the biggest opportunities in Disrupt history. We’re Stopping Accepting Startup Battlefield 200 Applications tonight, August 5, at 11:59 p.m. sharp PDT. No more deadline extensions, no more last-minute exceptions. No. Zipper. Nothing.

Lollygagger Alert: Drop what you’re doing and apply now for Startup Battlefield 200.

TechCrunch editors have been busy reviewing over 1,000 applications — and counting — to select an elite cohort of 200 promising startups. These founders will receive an opportunity-rich VIP experience at Disrupt.

The SBF 200 experience, 100% free, includes:

  • Access to all Disrupt presentations, workshops and roundtables
  • Exhibit space for all three days – and only SBF 200 startups can exhibit at Disrupt
  • Exclusive Masterclasses
  • Presentation training with TC staff
  • Pitch deck reviews with industry experts
  • The Investor and Publisher Flash-Pitch Opportunity TechCrunch
  • Networking opportunities for SBF 200 investors only
  • Media exposure
  • One year free subscription to TechCrunch+

All of this represents a huge opportunity to get noticed by industry influencers and potential customers – and gain access to potential funding.

Plus, if you make the cut, you’ll have a chance to compete for $100,000 in Startup Battlefield, the grand dame of all pitch competitions. TechCrunch editors will select 20 startups from the SBF 200 as Startup Battlefield finalists. Some of the household names in tech, like Dropbox, Mint, TripIt, and more, have been thrown onto the Startup Battlefield scene.

The founders of these 20 companies will receive private pitch coaching, be featured on TechCrunch, and present live on stage in front of the entire Disrupt audience. Only one rising star startup will win the title, the $100,000 non-equity prize, and all the glory.

It could be you, but only if you get your “ish” together and apply for the SBF 200 before the application deadline expires tonight at 11:59 p.m. PDT.

TechCrunch Disrupt takes place in San Francisco from October 18-20 with an online day on October 21. Don’t miss this historic opportunity from Disrupt. This bears repeating, so say it with me now – apply for TechCrunch Startup Battlefield 200 before 11:59 p.m. PDT tonight!
