Disrupt NY is almost here and we would like to extend the offer for you, some of the best startups in the world, to take part in Startup Alley, our special exhibition hall focused on bringing amazing startups together under one roof. This gets you a table at the event and the chance to show off your product to press, investors, and TC writers and editors. It’s a great way to launch and we’ve had many successful companies come out of the Alley.
Startup Alley is jam-packed with early stage companies showing their talent and technology to audience members. Close to 75 companies exhibit each of the three days of Disrupt. Browsing through Startup Alley introduces a range of exciting companies to the marketplace, many of which are launching at Disrupt for the first time and others that have been around for a few years. On the last day of Disrupt, May 7th, Startup Alley focuses solely on hardware startups, turning the pavilion into a sort of science fair-meets-maker-event.
Startup Alley companies also get the chance to present on the Disrupt stage in front of our esteemed judges. On Monday and Tuesday, the audience votes for their “Audience Choice Winner”, which receives the last spot to compete on stage as part of that day’s Battlefield contestants. If chosen, that company will be eligible to compete in the Battlefield Finals for the $50,000 grand prize and coveted Disrupt Cup. Startups wanting to participate in Startup Alley must be less than two years old, with less than $2.5 million in funding.
