Startup Battlefield applications for Disrupt SF close in 24 hours

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

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

They will join the ranks of 648 previous Startup Battlefield
contenders who have, to date, raised $6.9 billion in funding —
and 95 of those companies have been acquired or gone public.
Want to know more? You’ll find the complete details of past
Battlefields and their participants on the TechCrunch
Battlefield Leaderboard.

Participants get six minutes to pitch and present a live
product demonstration in front of an audience of roughly 3,000
people — and the event is streamed live world-wide on, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Battlefield
participants also receive expert pitch coaching and business
advice — not to mention lots of media and investor attention.

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

Still not convinced 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 participate in Battlefields typically receive
significant rounds of funding with six months.”

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

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