Accepting both applications and referrals

We’re accepting both quality applications and referrals for Startup Battlefield 200. If you are a groundbreaking early-stage startup, apply. If you know one (or several), refer. Submit your application before Monday, June 10 at 11:59 p.m. PDT.

Applications are 100% FREE and should only take you 30 minutes to complete. Scenario: You can submit after your Saturday dinner and be sipping cocktails with your friends on an outdoor patio after. Talk about a perfect evening!

The potential payoff? Joining companies such as Dropbox, Yammer, Mint, Cloudflare, and N26 who pitched onstage at Disrupt for a chance at equity-free prize money. And that’s just for starters!

Startup Battlefield 200: Behold the perks

As they say, money isn’t everything. All SB 200 companies receive the following perks, benefits and opportunities:

Full access to Disrupt: SB 200 founders attend Disrupt for free, receive four additional passes and VIP access to all the presentations, breakouts and roundtables.

Free exhibition space for the entire show: The SB 200 will be the only early-stage startups allowed to exhibit at Disrupt.

Investor interest and media exposure: Investors hunting for future unicorns and journalists looking for the next big story will beeline it to the exhibition floor to meet and greet the SB 200 founders.

Workshops and pitch training: SB 200 founders will be invited to exclusive workshops and master classes in the weeks running up to Disrupt, including special pitch training from TechCrunch staff.

Flash-pitch to an audience of investors and TC editors: That training will come in handy when you step onto the Pitch Showcase Stage. You’ll receive invaluable feedback, and you might find your way into an investor’s portfolio.

A shot at $100,000: TechCrunch editors will select 20 startups from the SB 200 to be Startup Battlefield finalists. Founders from those 20 companies will receive private pitch coaching, be featured in an article on TechCrunch and pitch live onstage in front of the entire Disrupt audience. The ultimate winner takes home the $100,000 equity-free prize and bragging rights to boot.

Do you have what it takes? You only have until Monday, June 10 at 11:59 p.m. PDT to prove it. Apply to the Startup Battlefield 200 right now. We’d love to see you in San Francisco!
