TechCrunch Disrupt is now one week away. We are excited to say that Startup Alley is now SOLD OUT. We have over 200 early stage companies joining us over two days on Monday and Tuesday. Thirty five percent of these companies are joining us from outside of the U.S.
On Monday and Tuesday of Disrupt, the audience votes for their “Audience Choice Winner” among all of the Startup Alley companies demoing on that day. The audience favorite receives the last spot to compete on the TechCrunch Disrupt stage as one of that day’s Battlefield contestants, and if chosen, will be eligible to compete in the Battlefield Finals for the $50,000 grand prize and coveted Disrupt Cup.
We are also sold out in the Brazilian, Mexican, Chilean, Argentinian and Israeli pavilions. Over 100 companies are joining us from these parts of the globe. The largest country based Pavilion is Brazilian with 38 companies from Latin America representing. We are excited to host these companies here in Silicon Valley and are sure that lots of useful connections will be made between them and companies here in the Bay Area. We are hosting online guides with details on all of these companies to facilitate connections at the conference.
