Startup Alley – the name conjures up images of early stage startups demonstrating groundbreaking products, platforms and services to thousands of disrupt participants and industry influencers. This is where you will find the envelope pinching and breaking the boundaries.
If you’re busy pushing envelopes and pushing boundaries, don’t miss your chance to exhibit at TechCrunch Disrupt 2021 on Startup Alley in September. But here’s the thing – we’re limiting the number of exhibitors this year and spaces on Startup Alley are filling up quickly.
Apply now for Startup Alley to secure your spot. Budget-friendly tip: Get your Startup Alley Pass for just $ 199 – but that deal is about to expire May 13 @ 11:59 p.m. PDT.
Startup Alley will still have a lot of great companies. But we want to present the best and give the exhibiting companies the focused presence they deserve.
What can you expect when you exhibit in Startup Alley this year? High visibility for the beginning. Each exhibiting startup has two minutes to present itself to a global audience during the featured breakout feedback sessions. Disruptive participants include all kinds of influencers – investors, tech icons, media – and potential customers.
You are given two lists that define opportunities – press and investors. Present your story to the press and increase your brand awareness. Schedule meetings with investors to explore funding opportunities or get feedback on your startup.
“Disrupt is a great way to network with potential investors. It carries a lot of credibility on the road and when we talk about our CEO’s experience in Startup Alley, we can make those connections and start important conversations. – Jessica McLean, Director of Marketing and Communications, Infinite-Compute.
They also have a shot that you can watch on one of the many Startup Alley Crawls. Each tech category has its own 1 hour crawl. The TechCrunch team will interview a selected number of exhibiting founders in each category live from the disrupt phase.
You may be one of only two issuing startups selected as the Startup Battlefield Wild Card. The TechCrunch editorial team calls, and the Anointed enter the iconic Startup Battlefield pitch competition to win the $ 100,000 prize. Win or lose, Startup Battlefield is a solid launchpad.
And here’s an important reason not just to issue, but to get your Startup Alley Pass ASAP. TechCrunch will select 50 exhibiting startups to participate in Startup Alley +. This cohort will have advantages in the TC Early Stage in July – even before Disrupt even starts. We talk about founder master classes, pitch-offs at Extra Crunch Live and very warm introductions to relevant top investors.
TechCrunch Disrupt 2021 will take place September 21-23. Push these envelopes, break these boundaries and don’t miss your chance to exhibit on Startup Alley. Don’t forget: tickets are limited this year and the early bird price ends on May 13 @ 11:59 p.m. PDT.
