Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein.

Entries received before or after an Entry Period will not be accepted. Limit one (1) Giveaway entry per person/per Entry Period. Multiple Giveaway entries by the same person in the same Entry Period will not result in multiple entries for that person, and may result in all of that person’s entries being voided. The use of any agencies or automated software to submit entries will void all entries submitted by that person.

At the conclusion of each Entry Period, Sponsor will select the name of one (1) potential winner in a random drawing of all eligible entries received during the applicable Entry Period. The odds of being selected as a potential winner depend on the number of eligible entries received during the applicable Entry Period.

PRIZES. A total of five (5) winners (one from each Entry Period) will receive an Innovator Pass for TechCrunch Disrupt 2021 valued at $99.00 USD. Prizes are non-transferable and no substitution is allowed except that Sponsor reserves the right to substitute a prize with one of comparable approximate retail value. All federal, state, and local taxes on a prize are the sole responsibility of the winners.

NOTIFICATION. Potential winners will receive a direct message from Sponsor to the Instagram account used to enter the Giveaway after each Entry Period. If a potential winner cannot be contacted or fails to respond to the direct message by the stated deadline, or if any prize or prize notification is returned as undeliverable, if any potential winner rejects their prize or in the event of noncompliance with these Official Rules, such potential winner’s prize will be forfeited and may be awarded to an alternate winner, time permitting. Upon prize forfeiture, no compensation will be given. Except where prohibited, potential winners may be required to complete and return an affidavit of eligibility and liability/publicity release (the “Affidavit/Release”) and an IRS W-9 form, within a timeframe to be determined by Sponsor. If a potential winner fails to sign and return the Affidavit/Release, and any other documentation required by Sponsor within the required time period, or if the notification is returned as undeliverable, the prize will be forfeited and may be awarded to an alternate winner. Potential winners must continue to comply with these Official Rules, and winning is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements. Except where prohibited, acceptance of the prize by a winner constitutes such winner’s consent that his/her name, likeness, voice and/or biographical data may be used for advertising and promotional purposes by Sponsor or its designees, without limitation and without additional notice compensation or consent.
Potential winners who are residents of Canada will be required to correctly answer, without mechanical or other aid, a time-limited mathematical skill-testing question administered by Sponsor.
