Startup Alley

Startup Alley is jam-packed with early stage companies showing off their talent and technology to attendees. With different companies exhibiting on Monday and Tuesday, Startup Alley hosts hundreds of exciting international companies in categories ranging from finance and security to e-commerce and travel. Many of these companies are launching at Disrupt for the first time and Disrupt is a great way to get in front of thousands of VCs and members of the press.

Additionally, on Monday and Tuesday, the audience votes for the “Wild Card Winner” giving the Startup Alley companies a chance to present on the Disrupt stage in front of our esteemed Startup Battlefield judges. The winning Startup Alley company receives the last spot to compete on stage as part of that day’s Battlefield contestants. If chosen, that company will be eligible to compete in the Battlefield Finals for the $50,000 grand prize and coveted Disrupt Cup.
