Disrupt NY 2016 is just a few short months away, as soon hundreds of entrepreneurs, investors and innovators will flock to the lovely Brooklyn Cruise Terminal for the best startup show in the Big Apple. Will you and your budding international startup be with them?
One of our favorite parts of Disrupt over the past few years has been the inclusion of the country pavilions within Startup Alley, spots where promising startups from around the world pitch their ideas and products to the tech community.
In previous years, we’ve featured companies from Hong Kong, Japan, the Nordics, Korea, Ireland, the Middle East and more, and we’re thrilled to announce that this year’s show will be just as diverse. That said, we’re still looking for more international startups to sign up for country pavilions at Disrupt NY’s Startup Alley, so get in touch with us today to express your interest.
So, why should you sign up for a country pavilion, you ask? Displaying in Startup Alley is a great way to get your product or service in front of the eyes of some of the most prominent investors, developers and enthusiasts in the tech community, folks who can help take your company to the next level.
Plus, many of the TechCrunch writers and editors, as well as dozens of other members of the press will be in attendance, which could land your company the coverage it needs to make it big.
CrunchBase data from Disrupt NY 2014 perhaps tell it best. Startup Alley companies at that event that were on display at the show raised a total of $90.9 million, with 11 companies raising $78 million in just the first three months post-Disrupt.
Registration is now available for Startup Alley spots and country pavilions. All Startup Alley companies must be less than 2 years old and have raised less than $2.5 million in funding. If you meet those criteria, you can sign up for a pavilion by dropping the events team an email and describing your startup. They’ll get back to you with more info on how to get started.
And if you don’t have a company but still want to join in on all the fun that happens at Disrupt, you can get your tickets to the show here.
