European Startups, Apply For Disrupt Europe Startup Battlefield Now!

Calling startups from London to Lyon, from Tel Aviv to Trondheim, from Amsterdam to Athens: We want you. For the very first time, TechCrunch Disrupt is coming to Europe and we’re looking for the very best startups to launch on our Berlin stage.

Startup Battlefield is the heart and soul of our conferences. Such companies as Yammer, Dropbox, FitBit, Swype and hundreds more have launched from the Disrupt stage. Come October, it will be Europe’s time to shine.

Last month, at Disrupt NY 2013, Enigma bested a very impressive batch of startups including HAN:DLESupplyShift, and Zenefits. The very best startups showed up in New York this year, and we’re excited to bring the magic of a full-blown Disrupt conference to Europe for the first time.

Are you ready to launch your company on the biggest startup launch stage and get the highest profile possible? Tell us about it.

As in years past we’re looking for the very best startups to compete in the Startup Battlefield and walk away with the Disrupt Cup, $50,000 cash, and gobs of attention. For the first two days, 30 companies will present their product to a panel of judges.

But first you have to apply. Click here for the application and full list of rules.

We hope you’ll join us.


But we need your help. Apply for Startup Battlefield and help us make the first Disrupt in Europe one they’ll talk about for years to come.

Applications are reviewed by TechCrunch writers and on a rolling basis — and the last two Disrupts had record numbers of applicants — so it’s to your advantage to submit as soon as you are ready. Due to strong demand, we are unable to review applications more than once, so please do not submit a draft application before you are ready for final consideration. Just submit the one good one.

PowerPoint slides and video demos are optional but highly encouraged. We reserve the right not to review applications without video demos based on application volume. We look forward to reviewing your application.

All submissions are confidential unless otherwise permitted by applicants on the application form.

And of course, our sponsors help make events happen. If you are interested in learning more about sponsorship opportunities, please contact our sponsorship team at
