Do you have what it takes to be a Startup Battlefield a hero? All you need is Killer Ground, MVP, nerves of steel, motivation and determination to stand up against all comers to claim the coveted Disrupt Cup.
The best early stage startups from around the world – from any country and industry – will compete for a $ 100,000 free stock prize fund. This is a huge boost in profits, and it also comes with global prominence, massive media interest and huge investor interest. Oh, and let’s not forget the bragging rights associated with winning the Disrupt Cup.
Here’s a quick summary of how it all works. First and foremost: Applying and participating in the Startup Battlefield is free – no fees or any capital reduction. TechCrunch’s editorial team is reviewing all the apps and will select nearly 25 notable startups to enter the TechCrunch Best Tech Show competition.
Competing Founders receive several weeks of extensive training with the Startup Battlefield Team – again for free. Presentation skills, business models, and business models will be honed and refined to perfection. You will be more than ready to actually step onto the tech world’s most iconic stage.

The judges will then put you in your paces with questions and answers. If you make the first cut, you will repeat the experiment in the second round with a new set of umpires. In the third round – also known as the Finals – another group of referees will hear the pitches and then declare the Startup Battlefield champion.
