TechDigiPro Disrupt is a global event, and the Startup Battlefield 200 cohort reflects the rich geographic genius the world has to offer. Although we’ve never had an Antarctic startup, it’s probably just a matter of time. Right now though, we are looking at the countries that make up APAC and Oceania.
APAC and Oceania: Join the Startup Battlefield 200
Time is running out so we urge all new businesses residing in the Far East, Middle East, South East or South Australia to apply for Startup Battlefield 200 in Disruption 2023. The application window closes on May 15 at 11:59 pm PDT.
SB 200 is the preeminent competition of the startup world and has a global reach. The inaugural cohort, which debuted last year at Disrupt 2022, included 14 startups from seven APAC/Oceania countries, including Australia, India, Israel, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, and the United Arab Emirates.
Two startups from the region were chosen as SB 20 finalists. The founders of BetterData (Singapore) and Digest.ai (United Arab Emirates) addressed the entire Disrupt audience, including blue-chip investors from around the world, for a $100,000 shot at the Startup Battlefield competition.
Benefits for Startup Battlefield 200 at TC Disrupt 2023
SB 200 membership has its privileges, the first of which is the coveted TechDigiPro seal of approval. Then there’s the intense (and invaluable) interest from investors and the media. SB 200 founders also receive a host of free perks, benefits and opportunities.
Interrupt Access: This includes four additional passes and VIP access to all presentations, sessions and roundtables.
Exclusive workshops and masterclass: SB 200 founders will enjoy workshops in the weeks leading up to Disrupt. They also receive special presentation training from TechDigiPro staff and a free year of TechDigiPro+ membership.
Flash pitch at Disrupt: That special training will come in handy when you enter the Showcase Stage and present in front of TechDigiPro investors and editors. Receive invaluable feedback and who knows? – might even capture the interest of an investor.
Exhibit space on the show floor: The SB 200 will be the only early-stage startups allowed to exhibit at Disrupt.
Saving the best for last: All SB 200 founders have the opportunity to compete for $100,000 in the Startup Battlefield pitch competition. TechDigiPro editors will select 20 startups from the SB 200 to be Startup Battlefield Finalists. The founders of those 20 companies will appear on TechDigiPro, receive private training, and then perform live on stage in front of the entire Disrupt audience. The final winner takes home the $100,000 no-prise prize and all the glory.
APAC and Oceania, show us your innovative startups! If you want to launch yourself into the world on a global stage, sign up for Startup Battlefield 200 by May 15 at 11:59pm PDT. We want to see you this September in San Francisco!
