We’ve officially closed Day Two of TC Disrupt SF 2015, complete with speaking appearances from John Doerr, Andre Iguodala, Nick Woodman, and Tim Westergren. But as Tuesday of Disrupt comes to a close, so too does the first phase of the TC Disrupt Battlefield.
Of the 25 companies to launch on our stage, six were selected to participate in the final round, where they will have exactly six minutes to yet again present their product onstage followed by a 12-minute Q&A session. Given the high caliber of each of the Battlefield presentations, it was difficult to narrow down from 24 to six, but after much deliberation, we’ve made our selections.
Finals judges include Troy Carter (Atom Factory), Roelof Botha (Sequoia Capital), Aileen Lee (Cowboy Ventures), Matthew Panzarino (TechCrunch), Brian Pokorny (SV Angel) and Ruchi Sanghvi (Dropbox).
So without any further ado, it’s my pleasure to announce the finalists of the Disrupt SF 2015 Battlefield:
