Startup Alley

Startup Alley is the heart of Disrupt Berlin where hundreds of pre-series A startups and sponsors across all verticals will be showcasing their latest tech products, platforms and services.

There are two ways to participate in Startup Alley: either as a paid exhibitor in Startup Alley or if you are selected by our editorial team for a FREE Startup Alley exhibitor as a TC Top Pick in one of the highlighted categories:


  • Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning
  • BioTech/HealthTech
  • Blockchain
  • FinTech
  • Mobility
  • Privacy/Security
  • Retail/eCommerce
  • Robotics/IoT/Hardware
  • CRM/Enterprise



TC Top Pick applications are now closed.

We have some contests and giveaways for those who purchase a Startup Alley Exhibitor Package:

  • All startups who purchase a Startup Alley Exhibitor Package will be entered into a drawing to win 3 tickets to our Speaker & Editors Dinner at Disrupt Berlin; a rare chance to mingle with TechCrunch editors, investors, and other tech enthusiasts. We will pick one team for the next 4 weeks (Oct 28-Nov 22) to be chosen!
  • 50 startups from Startup Alley will be selected at random leading up to Disrupt to have a 60-second flash pitch on the Showcase Stage.

Startup Alley Exhibitor Packages are now sold out. Founder passes are still available to attend the show on our ticketing page.
