How does this differ from Startup Battlefield 200? 

Startup Battlefield is specifically for pre-series A Startups (bootstrapped, pre-seed, seed) who apply for a chance to pitch on the main stage and win $100K equity-free prize money. These startups also exhibit for all 3 days of the conference. Startup Battlefield 200 is free to apply.

How does this differ from sponsorable exhibitor opportunities? 

Our sponsor exhibitors get to exhibit for all 3 days of the conference, get more branding/exposure opportunities, bigger spaces, and more tickets to the show.
