Applications are due midnight pst on Sunday Night, April 3, 2011. We will review applications on a rolling basis, so it's to your advantage to submit as soon as you are ready.
Due to strong demand, we are unable to review applications more than once, so please do not submit a draft application before you are ready for final consideration.
Powerpoint slides and video demos are optional but highly encouraged. We reserve the right not to review applications without video demos based on application volume.
We look forward to reviewing your application.
Thanks for considering TechCrunch Disrupt as your launch platform.
Disrupt Battlefield Requirements / Rules
To compete in the Startup Battlefield, at time of application submission startups must be live for fewer than three months and less than two years old.
In selecting final contestants, we will give heavy preference to companies that launch for the first time to the public and press at TechCrunch Disrupt. We consider new products from existing companies to be significant. Due to the limited number of competition slots on stage, companies launching new feature sets do not qualify as launch companies. The competition will take place in New York, but companies from around the globe are welcome to submit their startups for consideration.
There is no cost to apply to the Startup Battlefield. Selected companies receive two free tickets to attend and present at TechCrunch Disrupt.
Companies that have presented at other public launch events are not eligible for Startup Battlefield. If you're choosing between launch platforms and need an early decision, please apply and email us at email@example.com and we'll priority review your application.
