TechCrunch Disrupt Hearts Argentinian, Brazilian & Israeli Startups – Pavilions FTW!

Our hair-brained idea to pilot a Brazilian Pavilion at the upcoming TechCrunch Disrupt has taken a life of its own!

We expected 10 startups to show interest. Boy did we underestimate… There are now — wait for it — 76 Brazilian startups that have signed-up to take part in the Pavilion! This is on top of the 23 Israeli startups that have lined-up for their own Pavilion.

But the surprises didn’t stop there. Argentinian startups emailed us, asking if they can have their own dedicated Pavilion as well. The answer was, ‘por supuesto amigos!’

Let’s wind this back a bit… Last week we announced that Disrupt SF will feature both the staple Israeli Pavilion and a new Brazilian one.

Flying half a world to attend Disrupt isn’t cheap, especially for early stage startups. That’s where the Pavilion packages come in. They include:

  • A cocktail table for the entire duration of the event.
  • Two tickets for the entire duration of the event.
  • Signage.

Note that only startups with less than $2M in funding and are less than two years old are eligible to participate. Also, Pavilion startups are not eligible to be voted for as the daily ‘Crowd Favorite’ (that goes up to present on the Battlefield stage).

  • Israeli Startups can sign-up, here.
  • Brazilian Startups can sign-up, here.
  • Argentinian Startups can sign-up, here.
