You’re a startup, planning to launch in September/October or November? Listen carefully. There are a few things you need to know. You need to know we have extended the deadline to submit applications for the Startup Battlefield at Disrupt Europe until Sunday, July 6th. Both Europe and non-Europe based teams are eligible to apply. You can apply for Battlefield right here, plus if you have already publicly launched, then apply for Startup Alley here. Disrupt Europe is on October 20-21 in London, plus there is a preceding free weekend hackathon, so put it in your diaries now!
Up for grabs is the £30,000 prize, the coveted “Disrupt Cup,” as well as feedback from the likes of SV Angel, Index Ventures, 500 Startups, TechStars, Angelpad and Seedcamp, among others. Plus, of course, masses of media attention and new user sign-ups.
Next up, you need to know we’re having a TechCrunch Meetup in London and Berlin. A meetup in Paris is being planned, stay tuned.
The TechCrunch London Summer Meetup will be in London on Friday July 11 at a venue to be announced soon. Please sign up here. This is an informal meetup to meet the TechCrunch writer team based in London and learn about what happens at Disrupt Europe. We may also try a PitchOff…
We are looking for sponsors so please email me: mikebutcher at techcrunch dot com or joey at techrunch.com.
