Plenty of perks for the Startup Battlefield 200 at TC Disrupt 2024

LatAm entrepreneurs, you span a range of nations across the Americas. Throw your hats into the ring, and show us what you’re building. Here’s what’s in it for you.

It starts with receiving the TechCrunch seal of approval — it’s hard to come by, and it carries weight in the startup world. You’ll stand in a spotlight of invaluable investor and media interest. Take a look at what else you receive — for free.

Full access to Disrupt: This includes four additional passes and VIP access to all the presentations, breakouts and roundtables.

Exclusive masterclasses: SB 200 founders will enjoy workshops in the weeks leading up to Disrupt. They also receive special pitch training from TechCrunch staff.

Flash pitch at Disrupt: That special training will come in handy when you step onto the Showcase Stage and pitch in front of investors and TechCrunch editors. Receive invaluable feedback and — who knows? You might even catch an investor’s interest.

Exhibition space for all three days: The SB 200 will be the only early-stage startups allowed to exhibit on the show floor at Disrupt.

Saving the best for last: All SB 200 founders have a shot at competing for $100,000 in the Startup Battlefield pitch competition. TechCrunch editors will select 20 startups from the SB 200 to be Startup Battlefield finalists. Founders from those 20 companies will be featured on TechCrunch, receive private pitch coaching and then pitch live onstage in front of the entire Disrupt audience. The ultimate winner takes home the $100,000 equity-free, no-strings-attached prize money and all the glory.

If you’re an early-stage founder based in Latin America, don't miss this chance to launch your business on a global stage. Apply for the Startup Battlefield 200 at Disrupt 2024 by June 10 at 11:59 p.m. PDT.
