If Battlefield is the soul of Disrupt, Startup Alley is the ever-beating heart. It’s a wild marketplace where startups gather on the show floor to demo their creations.
Making these connections is critical to keeping communication flows open between the startup cultures here in the U.S. and other parts of the world. With new markets emerging fast, we were joined in September at Disrupt SF 2012 by Brazilian, Mexican, Chilean, Argentinian and Korean startups.
For Disrupt New York we are working with the Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) for emerging companies to come and join the Indian Pavilion. In addition, we’ll be partnering again with Initial.vc to bring Israeli and Brazilian companies to the US.
What is Startup Alley?
- You get a cocktail table to demo for one day (Monday or Tuesday of the conference)
- Two tickets for the entire 3 day event and After parties
- Compete for the “Audience Choice Award”
Exhibiting startups must be less than two years old and have less than $2.5 million in funding. Each day the ‘Audience Choice’ Startup Alley company gets to present on stage at Disrupt and earn the chance to fight for the Disrupt Cup and $50,000 grand prize. Interested startups from Israel sign up here! For Brazil, sign up here! Startups from London, Berlin, Paris, Helsinki and Stockholm can sign up here. And if you are any sort of startup and want to join us in Startup Alley, please sign up here.
