Startup Battlefield is TechCrunch’s premiere startup launch competition, and the next one is at TechCrunch Disrupt NYC, May 9-11th. 

The companies selected to compete will pitch on-stage in front of some of the biggest names in tech. Applications are open through 2/29.

Last year, our judges included partners from Sequoia, Kleiner Perkins, Founder Collective and SV Angel. Companies receive coaching on their pitch from TechCrunch Editors, an exhibit area in the Disrupt Startup-Alley, invites to our VIP events and, of course, TC swag.
