This is intended for all founders of start-up startups. Whether you are overwhelmed by the state of the world, overworked – or whether procrastination is simply an intrinsic part of your DNA – it doesn’t matter. Here’s the reason to smile. We are giving you an additional week to apply to participate in Startup Battlefield during Disrupt 2020. Complete your application before the new deadline expires on June 26 at 11:59 p.m. PT.
It’s time to grab a double handful of opportunities and step into the global spotlight. Virtual Disrupt 2020 represents our largest audience and largest launch platform ever – more investors, more media, and more, everything. If you are chosen to participate in our first launch, you will run into some of the best startups in the world.
Here’s what’s at stake: massive exposure that can – whether you win the battle or not – change the trajectory of your startup, a launch article on TC.com, a 6-week mini-training program with a TC editorial , all the benefits of a Digital Disrupt Digital Pro pass (and then some) and a $ 100,000 shot, the Disrupt Cup and all the bragging rights.
You have the right to apply if your business is just starting out, has an MVP with a technical component (software, hardware or platform) and has not received much, if any, major media coverage. Note: ClearTipsNews does not charge any application or participation fees or take participation. We accept founders from all backgrounds, geographies and industries.
Veteran editors from ClearTipsNews Battlefield (such a tough group) review each app and select startups that meet their exacting standards for innovation and growth potential. The virtual competition takes place during Disrupt 2020, which runs from September 14 to 18.
Do you feel that sweat flop build up? Do not worry. All competing founders receive weeks of free expert coaching from ClearTipsNews. Your presentation, demo and business model will shine like never before on match day.
Startup Battlefield consists of two towers. Each team has six minutes to present and demonstrate to our panel of TC writers, expert VCs and top entrepreneurs. Each team also faces a six-minute question and answer period. Outside of the original cohort, a handful of teams will make it to the final – the last day of Disrupt – and will again present a new set of judges. They will choose a team to win the title, cup and prize of $ 100,000.
Let’s take a look at the other opportunities available to Battlefield competitors.
- Exhibit in Digital Startup Alley and demonstrate your product to hundreds of people
- Network with CrunchMatch, our AI-based platform. Use it to organize 1: 1 virtual meetings with investors, media, potential clients or any other startup influencer

You will also join the likes of Vurb, Dropbox, GetAround, Mint, Yammer, Fitbit and other members of the Startup Battlefield Alumni community. This impressive group, made up (so far) of 902 companies, has collectively raised $ 9 billion and generated 115 exits.
Look forward, you have an additional week to apply to participate in Startup Battlefield at Disrupt 2020. The new deadline expires on June 26 at 11:59 p.m. PT. Don’t wait another minute. Make the most of this extensive opportunity.
