Listen up, future entrepreneurial superstars! Battlefield applications are due tomorrow, February 27th at 5pm PDT. Do NOT miss out on this once-in-a-six-month opportunity!
Why apply, you ask? I could list for you the many ways TechCrunch will work to get your company in front of the brightest and most influential people in tech, if that would help. I’d explain that you might win $50,000, but perhaps you’d be convinced by what former participants are up to these days.
For example, last year’s NY Battlefield winner Engima recently raised $4.5 million to beef up its public data-mining efforts. Uber Conference, launched in 2011, is busy letting you join Google Hangouts from your mobile phones and record conferences all while sharing files with ease.
No? That’s not enough?
Beyond the fortune and fame sure to follow you around forever after your stint on our stage, we can maybe offer you a small token of our appreciation for your application to the show.
I, Jordan Crook, curator of snaps and self-proclaimed voice of a generation, offer to our 2014 Battlefield Winners, the opportunity to share a selfie. Think of it: You. Me. Selfie.
You see, I have quite a reputation for picking winners.
Yep, I’m a winner, too.
Applications are open now through tomorrow February 27th. Questions? Hit up email@example.com.
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 at Disrupt NY, but teams around the globe are welcome to submit their startups for consideration.
Companies that have presented at other public launch events are not eligible for the Battlefield. If you’re choosing between launch platforms and need an early decision, please apply and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll priority review your application.
