Reminder: Disrupt NY Startup Battlefield Applications Are Due Monday, Feb 25th

The time is nigh. Startup Battlefield applications need to be submitted and completed by Monday, February 25th. We’re looking for the very best startups to launch on Disrupt NY’s stage, but first you have to apply. By Monday. That’s five days from now.

Apply here. And due to the sheer amount of apps we receive, it’s advantageous to get yours in as early as possible. We’re already reviewing applications. As noted on the Disrupt NY event page, PowerPoint slides and video demos are optional but highly encouraged. Make us remember your startup.

You can watch a quick video (below) about what it means to take part in Disrupt or you can just submit. You can purchase tickets here or, if you’re the bold type, you can get a free ticket by taking part in our pre-event 24-hour Hackathon (tickets for that event aren’t open yet, but it’s equally amazing). In short, we want NYC to show up and kick ass. Seriously.

Disrupt NY will take place on April 29th through May 1st at our new venue, the Manhattan Center. Last year, UberConference was the breakout star of the New York Battlefield companies and walked away with $50,000, the coveted Disrupt Cup, and an insane amount of press attention. Join the ranks of previous Battlefield companies like Mint, Yammer, Dropbox, Fitbit and more.

Apply now for the Disrupt Startup Battlefield. Applications are open until 11:59 p.m. PDT, Monday night, February 25, 2013.


To compete in the Startup Battlefield, at time of application submission startups must be live for less than three months.

In selecting final contestants, we will give heavy preference to companies that launch for the first time to the public and press at TechCrunch Disrupt. We consider new products from existing companies to be significant. Due to the limited number of competition slots on stage, companies launching new feature sets do not qualify as launch companies. The competition will take place in New York, but companies from around the globe are welcome to submit their startups for consideration.

Companies that have presented at other public launch events are not eligible for Startup Battlefield. If you’re choosing between launch platforms and need an early decision, please apply and email us at and we’ll priority review your application.
