TechCrunch Disrupt NYC is just one month away. One of the year’s most important tech gatherings, the event will bring together hundreds of professionals from Silicon Valley, Silicon Alley and around the world to celebrate innovation, entrepreneurship and the startup way of life. TechCrunch Disrupt NYC will kick off on April 27th with a two-day Hackathon, followed by a three-day conference from April 29th to May 1st.
At this 2013 edition of Disrupt NYC, as with last September’s San Francisco event, a special space will be set aside for startups from three up-and-coming international tech hubs: India, Israel and Brazil. The call for companies to apply to have a presence in one of these three Startup Alley pavilions was opened last month, and today, TechCrunch Disrupt organizers have reiterated the invitation for companies to apply.
We’re Looking at You, Latin America
Brazilian startups are encouraged to submit their applications to set up a booth in what is prime real estate in Startup Alley at TechCrunch Disrupt NYC. In the Brazilian Pavilion, entrepreneurs will be able to network, chat with investors and get to know others in Brazil’s startup scene.
Want to apply to have a booth but not based in Brazil? You’re in luck! Applications are also being accepted from startups from other locales. Qualifying startups from anywhere around the globe – that means you, Chile, Argentina, Peru, Mexico, Colombia, etc. – are invited to submit applications for a Startup Alley spot.
All applying companies – Brazilian or otherwise – must have received less than US$2.5 million in funding and be under two years old.
All exhibiting startups receive a cocktail table to demo for one day as well as two tickets to attend the entire three-day TechCrunch Disrupt conference and after parties. What’s more, Alley companies also compete for the Audience Choice Award, the winner of which will compete in Startup Battlefield for a US$50,000 prize.
